Hi there. I was working on my steering angle sensor these days. I forgot to fix the position of steering wheel when I removed the steering column so the sensor need to be calibrated. I already calibrated the clock spring. Anyone has any idea about how to put these two gears into their original position (in the steering angle sensor)? I came to the dealer and they just wanted to change the whole module without a little bit thinking of repairing it. ($1100 labor + part)
Any help would be appreciated.

Maybe it makes no difference & when you turn the steering wheel all the way to left & all the way to the right in order to calibrate the sensor that whatever the gears are driving will be automatically reset or "zeroed:in". Just a thought.

I'd make a W.A.G. and point the 2 holes towards each other, as if there was a retainer clip holding them in place before assembly. Or, it probably doesn't matter.
Someone probably has a picture out there of it intact, look for it on any Dodge RWD, Charger/300/Durango/JGC, that type of thing.

I believe this needs to be done in conjunction with an alignment and factory scan tool. Basically the computer needs to be told where everything is pointed. (This is a little outside of my training.)

You need a scanner. Ive done a few and you need to see the count. If i remember correctly it goes from 700 to -800. 0 is in the center. I dont see it being done without the scanner
