Adhesive Tape

  WARNING: If the clockspring is not correctly centralized, it may fail prematurely. If in doubt, repeat the centralizing procedure. Failure to follow these instructions may increase the risk of serious personal injury or death in a crash.

NOTE: Typical clockspring shown, others similar.

  1. NOTICE: Do not over-rotate the clockspring rotor. The internal ribbon wire is connected to the clockspring rotor. The internal ribbon wire acts as a stop and can be broken from its internal connection. Failure to follow this instruction may result in component damage and/or system failure.

    Turn the clockspring rotor clockwise, carefully feeling for resistance to turning.
  1. NOTE: The clockspring rotor must stop at the first instance that the electrical connector is at the 12 o'clock position.

    Turn the clockspring rotor counterclockwise so the electrical connector is in the 12 o'clock position.
  1. NOTE: After final positioning, do not allow the clockspring rotor to rotate from this position.

    Turn the clockspring rotor counterclockwise through 3 complete turns ending with the clockspring rotor electrical connector in the 12 o'clock position.
  1. When the clockspring is correctly centralized, the wiring harness is visible through the site glass and the 2 arrows at the LH side are aligned. Make sure the clockspring does not rotate from this position until after the steering wheel is installed.
  1. Tape the clockspring inner rotor to the outer housing.
