What you will need
- Flathead screwdriver
- Metric Sockets
- Work Gloves
- Torque Wrench
- 21mm socket
- 10mm wrench
- Locate the battery in the engine bay and disconnect the negative cable. To remove the cable from the battery post you will need to loosen the 10 mm bolt.
Wait at least 10 minutes before you start work on the airbag system.
Remove the airbag by using a screwdriver to press on the three locking pins that hold the Hyundai Elantra airbag in place.
Next, you will need to remove the 21 mm nut that holds the steering wheel in place. It is easier to remove this nut using a breaker bar.
Once you remove the steering wheel you will be able to access the clock spring. Before you can remove the clock spring you will need to remove the plastic trim which is held in place with three screws.
Install new clock spring in reverse order. Ensure all electrical connectors are secure. Tighten the steering column nut to 50 Nm using a torque wrench.
