The clockspring is used to transmit electrical signals from the steering wheel's controls and airbag to the vehicle's electrical systems and computers. Due to the constant use of the steering wheel, it is common for the clockspring to be damaged or worn out. Replacing it is relatively easy, although a few different things must be removed to access it.

You'll need to remove the steering column covers, the steering wheel, airbag and also the instrument cluster surround trim. See our articles on Turn Signal and Wiper Switch Replacement, Steering Wheel Removal, Airbag Removal, and Instrument Cluster Removal for more information.

It is also very important to disconnect the battery before removing the clockspring. See our article on Battery Replacement for more information.

Remove the four small Phillips head screws holding the clockspring to the steering column (green arrows).
