How to Replace a Clock Spring (airbag light & horn not working)


Learn how to turn off your airbag light and fix a horn that doesn’t work by replacing your clock spring. Replacing a clock spring is very simple, saves us over $600 and takes less than an hour. I will show you how to safely remove the airbag and steering wheel so you can replace the clockspring at home using common hand tools.

To figure out I had a bad clock spring, I used an obd2 scanner to scan the airbag light and got codes b1801 and b1811 which is an open squib circuit, which means the clock spring is bad. Another way to tell the clock spring is bad is the horn doesn’t work and/or the steering wheel buttons don’t work.
