    Clock Spring for 03 Tacoma
    I recently purchase a 03 Tacoma and the clock spring needs to be replaced. I thought I would look on ebay and I found some. One description states this:

    "Toyota Corolla Tacoma Drivers Side Airbag Clock Spring that came out of a 2001 toyota Tacoma. This Clock Spring is from a good car that has not been in a wreck. It has Not been turned over its limit either. It is the same clock spring used in the 2000 to 2004 Tacomas, some Mr2s, Celicas and a few of the 01, 02, Corollas too."

    This sounds legit, but what do you think? Just learning.

    Thanks,
    RedRumble

    The clock spring (spiral cable) is located in the stirring section under the horn/airbag section of the stirring wheel. My airbag light is on & the horn isn't working. From other post I've read the problem is the clock spring. I was just wondering if someone could verify the eBay description I posted in the original post.

    Thanks for the help.

    If you mess with it If you remove the plastic around the column theres a yellow plug remove it so you dont have to worry about the airbag going off.

    The correct procedure is to remove the battery cable for several minutes, then pump the brakes several times. The SRS system is designed with a back up power source therefore you must wait at least 90 seconds with the key in the LOCK position for it to deplete itself. Pumping the brakes also helps rid the system of any charge.
