buy a "clock spring"

Postby jamesmetairie » Thu Aug 10, 2017 7:40 am

2005 vibe(base model) about 120,000 miles on it.

never wrecked. airbag light is on.
my longtime mechanic put his new fancy scanner on it and says the "clock spring" is the problem.

every where I call they tell me it,s a dealer part.

what kind of options have you folks been doing to safely replace or repair it?

is gmpartsdirect.com a honest palce to buy it?

thanks for any advice.

I've purchased parts from GMpartsdirect before. They are great, but they tend to run a bit expensive. The Toyota parts direct sites sell them for similar or higher prices.

I'm with Jolt here, pick up the part on eBay or Amazon. The Toyota part number is 8430602110.

Dorman makes clock springs, I was looking at their catalog yesterday. Try their site.

Have you had your airbag recalls done?
