Default Honda Civic 2006 Reel

My Civic was producing a squeeking noise from behind the steering
wheel. Since it is still covered by warrenty, I brought it in to the
dealer to look over. They told me that there was a reel behind the
steering wheel that was unwinding cable when it shoudn't have. They
replaced the reel and perhaps the cable. No more noise. Steering is
fine.

Would someone explain what this reel and cable are about? Thank you
in advance.

Default Re: Honda Civic 2006 Reel

It is reel of ribbon cable for the airbag and controls on the steering
wheel. It allows the steering wheel make a few complete revolutions
without wires getting to tight, loose, or twisted while making
perfect contact. There are no moving contact points like brushes on
the armature of an electric motor.

It's not a very exact explanation but probably enough for you to get
the idea. Hope it helps!

Maintains electrical contact between switches/buttons on the steering wheel
(horn, radio controls, cruise control, etc.) and their respective devices.
Remember, the steering wheel spins so there is a reel with very flexible
wire wrapped around it. It's called the cable reel.
