I was wondering is it needed to get a new clock spring when replacing the turn signal assembly on the 2012 Nissan Altima?





You do not need a new clock spring. What you may need is to carry out clock spring calibration. That's because when you remove the clock spring, it usally gets rotated and then the car does not know where center is. Keep the steering wheel on the same location on reinstallation. Also do not move the clock spring when you remove it. You may be able to get away without calibration. If you need calibration you will know because the steering wheel will not be on center or the ABS or traction control light will come on.

Let us know how it goes.
