They charged me out the wazoo to change mine out on my truck. I wish I would have done it myself.

Did "2 hours" of diagnostics since I told them the clock spring was bad, they asked if I wanted them to check to make sure, didn't know they would bill two hours to check.

I called around about the clock spring on my caravan b4 I junked it, that ebay price is all the dealers were asking. I did find one dealer that said there was a recall on my 97gcvan and it would be free, too many other things wrong though, so I ditched it for a deadrango.

Nope...nobody uses eBay.

Just don't use anything fishy to pay. Credit Card or PayPal (preferably PayPal) would be best.

yes there is a recall on the clock spring on Dakotas. My 2000 was part of it

I just replaced my clock spring on my 2001 Durango. Bought the clock spring from the dealer for $68. Taking my time it took me a liitle of an hour to change it out.

The recall was only a specific date range in MY2000. Just so you know, Rock Auto has them for about $40, and there's a 5% discount code in the first post of his vendor forum.

I've read several times it isn't too bad. I was afraid to do the one on my gcaravan for the black eye. Just make sure to avoid any yellow wires as they are to the air bag and don't care if you unhooked the battery or not.
