Steering Wheel Installation

  1. Before installing the steering wheel, make sure the front wheels are pointing straight ahead, then center the cable reel (A). Do this by first rotating the cable reel clockwise until it stops. Then rotate it counterclockwise about three full turns. The arrow mark (B) on the cable reel label should point straight up.

  1. Position the two tabs (A) of the turn signal canceling sleeve (B) as shown. Install the steering wheel on to the steering column shaft, making sure the steering wheel hub (C) engages the pins (D) of the cable reel and tabs of the turn signal canceling sleeve. Do not tap on the steering wheel or steering column shaft when installing the steering wheel.

  1. Install the steering wheel bolt (A), and tighten it to the specified torque. Connect the cable reel subharness connector (B). Make sure the wire harness is routed and fastened properly.
    • Turn the ignition switch to ON (II) and check that the SRS indicator should come on for about 6 seconds and then go off.
    • Make sure the horn and turn signal switches work properly.
    • Make sure the steering wheel switches work properly.
  1. After installation, do these checks:
    • Check the steering wheel spoke angle. If the steering spoke angles to the right and left are not equal (steering wheel is not centered), correct the engagement of the wheel/column shaft splines.
    • Set the steering column to the center tilt position, and to the center telescopic position, then do the front toe inspection.
