Clock spring is the device which transmits electrical signals on the steering wheel so that wires do not get tangled while turning the wheel. Usually they are circular and have internals set up in a way like a railroad track/car so that the contacts always touch but can also move.
They can also look like a real clockspring. Wound up so that it can wind and unwind without binding.

Honestly though, this is one of those parts I would just suck it up and pay to get a new OEM one from the dealership.

2004-

Gonzo, the infamous Gonzo who penned the popular "Ignore this post" thread, had a problem with his spiral connector which was replaced under warranty. Fortunately for you, he posted the part numbers for the components.

Here is a link to the thread: Steering wheel channel up/down not working The part numbers can be found in post #7.

Good luck.

My guess would be yes. Nissan tends to have a lot of parts that are interchangable between cars. A safe bet would be to obtain a clock spring from a Maxima due to the fact that the Murano is based of it's platform and both steering wheels are about the same size. I would not try to use a clock spring from a smaller car like a sentra or altima. Hell, I would just order the correct part in the first place, but if you have to use a subsitute I would try using the Maxima's clockspring.

Using that arguement then the Altima would be the better choice, since the MO is built on the Altima, not the Maxima, platform.

Thank you. I knew that the platform is shared, however some other people do not get their facts correct first before they post a rebuttal to someone's else post.

The Altima has a smaller steering wheel I believe, therefore I would rather recommend that someone try the Maxima's clock spring first. P.S. Use some common sense. If you are looking for a replacement part, you should go with the most similar part or "size" part not a smaller part. Common on "Super Moderator", think first before you post.
Physical size of the wheel and the platform mean squat. The main concern here SHOULD be 'is the wiring the same'?

Depending on options, they can vary. You dont want to cross the wiring to a bomb (the airbag).

So unless you have a good reason and the wiring diagrams, please, order and install the correct part. That said, I do recall reading about someone installing a heated wheel using Maxima parts.

CG-

I was simply making an observation. How you interpreted it as an argument is beyond me.

Have you considered switching to decaf?

This is what you posted. You could have just said that you think that the altima would be a good choice. But no. You had to quote me and then say that you think that the altima is a better choice that what I suggested. Hence, the argument.

I agree that the correct part should be used, but the OP wants to know if the part is interchangeble. I believe that the clock spring wiring harness and the airbag harness are different. The airbag harness would be yellow and separated from the other wiring harnesses. But, yes a person do not want to mess around with the airbag wiring without having the proper know how to properly handle it. And yes, the size of the wheel does mean squat. Nissan parts are usually the same among the similar platforms. The Nissan Maxima and the Murano even have the same instrument cluster and steering wheel, well at least the 2003-2006 models. Therefore, I believe that the two share the same clock spring. Is it a fact? No. I never checked myself. But I would bet money on it. P.S. Do you think that Nissan make different parts for every car it makes? No, the parts are very much the same in every car, especially the cars based on the same platforms. Do some research before you discuss things you do not know anything about, especially if you try to correct me.
