    Remove the two plastic caps on the left and right side of the steering wheel. The right cap has the cruise control poking through. Disconect the battery. Then remove the two Allen key screws. Then gently pull out the airbag. Pull up the yellow clips holding on each wire to the airbag and then remove the wires. Put down the airbag somewhere facing up. Then removethe the nut that holds on the steering wheel. 19mm I think and then firmly tug the wheel off. Then take out the clockspring. Be sure the clockspring is centered when you put in back because the clockspring can only rotate a certain amount of spins.

    Thanks for the info, it took about 28 minutes from start to finish to replace my clock spring (spiral wire). Amazing my 'Stealer' is charging $984.00 to do this for people.
