      Comments about Dorman - OE Solutions Airbag Clock Spring:

      I bought this to fix my intermittent air-bag light. The directions I found online weren't exact but this was still a fairly straightforward replacement. It looks exactly the same except for the lack of the Mopar logo. I did several figure eights and doughnuts in the local school parking lot and the airbag light did not turn on again.

          Product didn't last as long as I had anticipated. This was the sencond time that I had to replace a defective clock spring. The first was an orignal part and the other was exactly like the current one.
          Part is easy to install as long as you have a stearing wheel puller. I takes about 30 to 45 minutes to replace.
          Price was acceptable.

            I ordered the part on a Monday and received it on a Tuesday of the same week by UPS. The part was packaged very well and arrived in perfect condition. Anyone with a phillips head screwdriver, a steering wheel puller, a wrench or socket for steering wheel nut, a Haynes manual and a little mechanical ability could easily change this part. Even though it was an aftermarket part it fit perfectly.

                    Thought installation would be difficult but it wasn't. Hardest part was orienting the gear puller to get the steering wheel off. Clock spring was exact/perfect replacement.

                        Hi Nick! This Dorman - OE Solutions Airbag Clock Spring (Part No. 525-101) is not an exact fit for your 2001 Pontiac GM. The exact airbag clock spring for your 2001 Pontiac gm is currently unavailable online. I would suggest that you visit the nearest Advance Auto Parts store to check the availability of this part.

                        A:

                        Hi Saph, glad to help you! This Dorman - OE Solutions Airbag Clock Spring (Part No. 525-101) is an exact fit for your 2001 Chrysler Town & Country LX. Functions of a Clock Spring: The wires from the airbag system and other electrical systems connect through the bottom of the clock spring's electrical connector to the end of the conductive ribbon. The end of the ribbon is attached through the wires on the top of the clock spring's electrical connector to the air bag unit and other electrical parts such as horn or cruise controls. When the steering wheel revolves, the conductive ribbon rolls and unrolls allowing electrical contact between the electrical system around the entire arc of the steering wheel movement.

                        I'm happy to help, Griff! It is possible that the clock spring could cause your cruise control to not work in your vehicle. There could also be other parts that are causing the failure of your cruise control system. I suggest obtaining a repair manual for some diagnostic procedures for your vehicle and if you need further diagnostic assistance, try our 'Need expert help?' link further down this page.

                        No, this is not the cause of the turn signal failing to turn off after the turn has been made. That is due to weak parts in the turn switch unit. That is easy to replace,just make sure you get an aftermarket switch, that has been fitted with stronger parts.
