clock spring installation

I know there is a thread around here somewhere, but my phone won't let me use the search function and there isn't a JF app for windows phones HINT HINT. Anywho. I need to replace my clock spring and would like some direction.

I thinks this is for a jeep cherokee not a grand but there almost exactly the same if I remeber.

Here is another really poor quality video from dorman

Its actually a really easy job hardest part is getting the steering wheel off you need a 2 prong puller not 3 and it can suck. take your time and just get it off a mm at a time if you have too it will eventually come off.

also read the instructions first that came with it there is a little yellow tab you pull off at the end it lets the tension loose on the spring if you do it before you are screwed so just pay attention to that.

From someone who had one hell of a time getting the steering wheel off. Get a good puller and take you time. Like losttech said after the wheel is off its cake.
