INSTALL OR RECONNECT

CAUTION: Always use the correct fastener in the proper location. When you replace a fastener, use ONLY the exact part number for that application. The manufacturer will call out those fasteners that require a replacement after removal. The manufacturer will also call out the fasteners that require thread lockers or thread sealant. UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED, do not use supplemental coatings (paints, greases, or other corrosion Inhibitors) on threaded fasteners or fastener joint interfaces. Generally, such coatings adversely affect the fastener torque and joint clamping force, and may damage the fastener. When you install fasteners, use the correct tightening sequence and specifications. Following these instructions can help you avoid damage to parts and systems.

1.Steering wheel onto the steering shaft. Align the marks on steering shaft and steering wheel.
2.Steering wheel nut. Tighten to 40 Nm (30 ft. lbs.) .
3.Horn pad assembly (if not equipped with SIR). See: Lighting and Horns Horn Switch Service and Repair
