Good morning,

The clock spring will not short anything out. It will open the circuits and not allow any current.

I attached the procedures for you below.

I also attached the part for you.

WARNING: disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable before beginning air- bag system component service procedures. This will disable the airbag system. Failure to disconnect the battery could result in accidental airbag deployment and possible personal injury. Allow system capacitor to discharge for two minutes before removing airbag components.

REMOVAL
1. Position steering wheel and front wheels straight ahead.
2. Release hood latch and open hood.
3. Disconnect and isolate battery negative cable. Allow at least two minutes for the reserve capacitor in the ACM to discharge.
