the service manual. be like first ....
do you want dead air bags, in an accident.???
the clockspring runs many things.
step one is shut down air bags. or risk personal injury.
chapter 8L covers this and 8O, and is not trivial at all.
easy to take anything apart , harder back'
I have no idea at all what you dismantled, not a clue.
and is key to the answer, for sure.

WARNING: To avoid personal injury or *****, on
vehicles equipped with airbags, disable the supplemental
restraint system before attempting any
steering wheel, steering column, airbag, occupant
classification system, seat belt tensioner, impact
sensor, or instrument panel component diagnosis
or service. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative
(ground) cable, then wait two minutes for the
system capacitor to discharge before performing
further diagnosis or service. This is the only sure
way to disable the supplemental restraint system.
Failure to take the proper precautions could result
in accidental airbag deployment.
CAUTION: If the clockspring is not properly centered
in relation to the steering wheel, steering
shaft and steering gear, it may be damaged. (Refer
to 8 - ELECTRICAL/RESTRAINTS/CLOCKSPRING -
STANDARD PROCEDURE - CLOCKSPRING CENTERING).
Service replacement clocksprings are
shipped pre-centered, with the release button
engaged (raised) and a molded plastic shield
installed over the release button. This release button
should not be disengaged and the shield
should not be removed until the clockspring has
been installed on the steering column. If the release
button is disengaged before the clockspring is
installed on a steering column, the clockspring centering
procedure must be performed.
NOTE: Before starting this procedure, be certain
that the front wheels are in the straight-ahead position.
(1) Carefully slide the centered clockspring down
over the steering column upper shaft until the two
integral plastic latches on the back of the clockspring
housing are fully engaged through their openings in
the steering column lock housing (Fig. 17).

connectors to the two connector receptacles

tighten the two screws that secure the lower shroud
to the upper shroud. Tighten the screws to 2 N·m (18
(6) If the vehicle is equipped with the optional tilt
steering column, move the column back to the fully
raised position and move the tilt release lever back to
the locked (up) position.
(7) If a new clockspring has been installed, remove
the plastic shield covering the release button that
secures the clockspring rotor to the clockspring case
to maintain clockspring centering.
(8) Reinstall the steering wheel onto the steering
column. (Refer to 19 - STEERING/COLUMN/STEERING
WHEEL - INSTALLATION).
NOTE: Be certain that the steering wheel mounting
screw is tightened to the proper torque specification
to ensure proper clockspring operation.
(9) Reconnect the steering wheel wire harness connector
to the upper clockspring connector receptacle.
(10) Reinstall the driver airbag onto the steering
wheel. (Refer to 8 - ELECTRICAL/RESTRAINTS/
DRIVER AIRBAG - INSTALLATION).
