User's feedback:
“My problem is that whenever I drive, I started hearing rattling noise inside my steering wheel. I put pads on headlight and wiper switches attached a metal plate on the steering and tied up any loose wires, but I still hear the noise. I bet this spring wire keeps moving back-and-forth on mine.Thank you. I literally just did this on my old airbag clock spring.I replaced it finally.”
