Clockspring

The clockspring is designed to carry signals between the RCM and the driver air bag module.

The clockspring is installed on the steering column, and consists of fixed and moving parts connected by a coiled Mylar tape with internal conducting tracks. The Mylar tape is able to 'wind up' and 'unwind' as the steering wheel is rotated, maintaining electrical contact at all times between the RCM and the driver air bag module.

During removal and installation or renewal of the clockspring, pay attention to the following:

  • Before installation of the clockspring, it must be aligned according to the installation instructions.
  • Make sure that the vehicle electrical system is fully depowered and no other power source is connected.
  • Secure the clockspring rotor with adhesive tape to the clockspring outer.
  • The clockspring rotor must not be turned during removal or installation of the steering wheel or the steering column switch unit.
