Steering Wheel and Column

General Description

Steering Wheel and Column Construction

S5JB0B6201001

This double tube type steering column has the following three important features in addition to the steering function:
• The column is energy absorbing, designed to compress in a front-end collision.
• The ignition switch and lock are mounted conveniently on this column.
• With the column mounted lock, the ignition and steering operations can be locked to inhibit theft of the vehicle.
To insure the energy absorbing action, it is important that only the specified screws, bolts and nuts be used as 
designated, and that they are tightened to the specified torque. When the column assembly (6) is removed from the 
vehicle, special care must be taken in handling it. Use of a steering wheel puller or a sharp blow on the end of the 
steering shaft, leaning on the assembly, or dropping the assembly could shear the plastic shear pins which maintain 
column length and position.
The driver air bag (inflator) module is one of the supplemental restraint (air bag) system components and is mounted 
to the center of the steering wheel (1). During certain frontal crashes, the air bag system supplements the restraint of 
the driver’s and passenger’s seat belts by deploying the air bags. The air bag (inflator) module should be handled with 
care to prevent accidental deployment. When servicing, be sure to observe “Precautions on Service and Diagnosis of 
Air Bag System in Section 8B in related manual”.

assembly.

6) Remove contact coil cable assembly (1) with 

steering angle sensor (if equipped) from steering 
column.

7) Separate steering angle sensor from contact coil 

cable assembly referring to “Steering Angle Sensor 
Removal and Installation”.

Installation

1) Check to make sure that vehicle’s front tires are set 

at straight-ahead position and then ignition switch is 
at “LOCK” position.
