How to replace a clockspring on my 1999 jeep cherokee


CLOCKSPRINGThe clockspring cannot be repaired. It must be replaced if faulty or damaged, or if the driver side airbag has been deployed.
WARNING: THE AIRBAG SYSTEM IS A SENSITIVE, COMPLEX ELECTROMECHANICAL UNIT. BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DIAGNOSE OR SERVICE ANY AIRBAG SYSTEM OR RELATED STEERING WHEEL, STEERING COLUMN, OR INSTRUMENT PANEL COMPONENTS YOU MUST FIRST DISCONNECT AND ISOLATE THE BATTERY NEGATIVE (GROUND) CABLE. THEN WAIT TWO MINUTES FOR THE SYSTEM CAPACITOR TO DISCHARGE BEFORE FURTHER SYSTEM SERVICE. THIS IS THE ONLY SURE WAY TO DISABLE THE AIRBAG SYSTEM. FAILURE TO DO THIS COULD RESULT IN ACCIDENTAL AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT AND POSSIBLE PERSONAL INJURY.
REMOVALNOTE: Before starting this procedure, be certain to turn the steering wheel until the front wheels are in the straight-ahead position.
  1. Place the front wheels in the straight-ahead position.
  2. Remove the driver side airbag module from the steering wheel. Refer to Driver Side Airbag Module in the Removal and Installation section of this group for the procedures.
  3. Disconnect the steering wheel wire harness connector from the upper clockspring connector receptacle, which is located between the two upper spokes of the armature within the hub cavity of the steering wheel.
  4. Remove the nut that secures the steering wheel armature to the steering column upper shaft, which is located within the hub cavity of the steering wheel.
  5. Pull the steering wheel off of the steering column upper shaft spline using a two-jawed puller (Special Tool C-3894-A) When installing the puller onto the steering wheel, be certain that each jaw of the puller is seated in the pocket that is cast into the underside of the steering wheel armature on each side of the hub Steering Wheel Armature Pockets Also, if the clockspring is to be reused, be certain not to damage or deform the clockspring case when positioning the jaws of the puller below the steering wheel armature hub

  • Unsnap the two halves of the tilting steering column shroud from each other and remove both halves from the steering column.
  • Disconnect the two instrument panel wire harness connectors from the lower clockspring connector receptacles.
  • Remove the two screws that secure the clockspring case to the multi-function switch mounting housing


  • 8_29_2012_10_52_42_pm.gif
  • Remove the clockspring from the steering column by sliding the clockspring hub up and off of the steering column upper shaft. The clockspring cannot be repaired. It must be replaced if faulty or damaged, or if the driver side airbag has been deployed.

    INSTALLATIONIf the clockspring is not properly centered in relation to the steering wheel, steering shaft and steering gear, it may be damaged. Refer to Clockspring Centering in the Adjustments section of this group before installing or reinstalling a clockspring.
    Service replacement clocksprings are shipped pre-centered and with a locking pin installed. This locking pin should not be removed until the clockspring has been installed on the steering column. If the locking pin is removed before the clockspring is installed on a steering column, the locking pin cannot be reinstalled and the clockspring centering procedure must be performed.
    NOTE: Before starting this procedure, be certain that the front wheels are still in the straight-ahead position.
    1. While holding the centered clockspring hub and case stationary in relationship to each other, slide the clockspring down over the steering column upper shaft.
    2. Align and seat the three pins in the clockspring hub with the three holes in the hub of the turn signal cancelling cam. It should be noted that when the clockspring is properly centered the uppermost pin in the clockspring hub is an oblong pin, and it will only fit in the oblong hole in the hub of the turn signal cancelling cam.
    3. Align and seat the one pin and the two mounting holes on the clockspring case to their respective holes in the multi-function switch mounting housing.
    4. Install and tighten the two clockspring mounting screws. Tighten the screws to 2.5 N•m (22 in. lbs.)
    5. Reconnect the two instrument panel wire harness connectors to the lower clockspring connector receptacles.
    6. Position the lower tilting steering column shroud to the steering column. Install and tighten the screw that secures the shroud to the multi-function switch mounting housing. Tighten the screw to 1.9 N•m (17 in. lbs.)
    7. Position the upper tilting column shroud to the steering column with the hazard warning switch button inserted through the hole in the upper surface of the shroud. Align the upper tilting steering column shroud to the lower shroud and snap the two shroud halves together.
    8. Install the steering wheel to the steering column upper shaft. Be certain to index the alignment splines in the hub of the steering wheel armature with the splines on the shaft. Pull the clockspring wire harness through the hole between the two upper steering wheel armature spokes.
    9. Install and tighten the steering wheel mounting nut. Tighten the nut to 47 N•m (420 in. lbs.) Be certain not to pinch the wire harnesses between the steering wheel and the nut.
    10. Reconnect the steering wheel wire harness connector to the upper clockspring connector receptacle, which is located between the two upper spokes of the armature within the hub cavity of the steering wheel.
    11. Install the driver side airbag module onto the steering wheel. Refer to Driver Side Airbag Module in the Removal and Installation section of this group for the procedures.
    I would recommend having the dealer to replace the clockspring due to needing the special steering wheel puller and the fact that you will need to purchase the clockspring from the jeep dealer

    Trying to replace ignition switch cant get steering wheel off


    You'll need a special tool called a steering wheel puller to remove the steering wheel. Then the ignition switch is screwed in by tamper proof torx. You'll need tamper proof torx bit to remove the screws that hold the ignition switch on.

    How do I get to the blinker switch ?


    By switch, i assume that you mean inside the column. On a 1994, you have to remove the horn button (it just pulls off), then there are 3 phillips screws to remove. then remove the nut that holds the steering wheel on and use a puller to remove the wheel. then there is a plastic cover that will come off with a flat screwdriver. Next there is the steering column lock ring that has to come off. Remove the ring with a lock ring spreader (yes, you will need one) and remove the column locking plate and your there!!

    hi roberto
    its probably the small copper contacts in the plastic unit that encompasses the steering column this can be purchased and refitted quite easily by removing the steering wheel,removing the securing screws unplugging the electrical loom plug and slipping over the steering column. replace new unit in reverse . probably caused by over-exadurated movement of the signalling lever
