clockspring
 
looking for a clock spring for my '94 928 gts

A clock spring as in a spring inside the clock? The US market clocks have quartz movements, no springs in there. If you have a GTS with the rootwood console you may have the analog clock which is actually a 924 part, but it too has a quartz movement. Tell us more about the specifics of your car. And welcome!

I think he isreferring to the clock spring beneath the steering wheel.

Have you tried contacting our 928 specific vendors for a new one?

That won't fit in any 928 clock that I'm aware of.

I believe the 968ís clockspring works also

Interesting. What is a horn reset? There is a relationship between the horn and steering wheel position?

He said 'indicator reset".

What I've always heard called a "turn signal cancel".

And for the OP:

Don't mind Rob. His OCD comes out kind of strange at times.

It can be pretty severe, but it has the advantage that he knows just about every part on the car. And has a pic of it, too.

It also manifests as attempted humor that doesn't come across as such. Perhaps I need to invest in some emoticons. :)

I knew you were making a joke.

That was my point.

It was kinda funny.
But obscure enough that some probably didn't.

Especially a new guy who is asking a serious question.

Hey, OP...

Welcome. You've found what is probably the best, most knowledgeable and friendliest place for these cars.

Tell us more about your car, please.

Post some pics too.

He actually wrote "horn & indicator reset". I read that as "horn reset"and "indicator reset". Two separate resets. But maybe by "horn" he is referring to the audible turn signal sound and not THE horn.
