No. The reassemble order once I have the bearing and cap in place. I have seen two different versions on line. From the bearing cap, retaining spring, white plastic horn collar, locking plate, press it down and put the clip in place. OR...white plastic horn collar against the bearing cap, then spring, then locking plate, squish it down and then the clip.

Lets see how far we get before a call.

O.k.,unfortunately my info is not showing me this on this model here.

Unfortunately, this is all of the info I have for this here.I will open your question up for others here for others to see if they can assist further on this as there may be others here that may have more info on what to check or do with this issue.I hope you can get this resolved with ease. No need to reply to my last post here unless it is a last resort as it will keep your question locked to me and others will not be able to view it.If you feel you want to continue to work with me on this feel free to reply at any time but keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair this without seeing your vehicle.

Thanks Pete

I was trying to let you know that I'm going to reassemble as per diagram and get right back to you. If it doesn't feel right, I'll probably initiate a call. This will take me about 10 minutes
Customer reply replied 4 months ago

Ok. Seems good. Now my hi low beams are back, the left turn signal shuts off (ten years of my wife letting me know it’s on) the bad steering wheel wobble is now right and I’m about to bypass the VATS crap with a resistor. Hopefully I don’t blow my face off by screwing up the install of the airbag. Yeah, you’ve be cool. How can I keep you avail and reconnect for a few other fixes in the next 24-48 hours? And make sure you get paid?

thanks. you can request me when you post a new question.

I will be traveling tomorrow to my home and will be home around 5 pm EST. I will be on from there on

Perfect. We’ll be in touch. Did the pictures help? Next, other under that dash stuff. The heat cool redirect flap and the body computer EPROM I guess needs to be reseated in the socket to get my fuel gauge to read again. Already have a new sender and pump in

yep, pictures were great
