Product Description

These units go by multiple names depending on who you ask. Steering angle sensor, contact reel, and air bag clockspring are all common names for this part. 

When these units fail you'll often get a warning light on the dash stating that DSTC needs service, traction control is off, or something of this nature. Failure should be verified with an OBD reader that can read network fault codes. Replacement is fairly straightforward on this part and involves disconnecting the battery, then the airbag and steering wheel to access the part. Although replacement is a bolt on/ off, components need to be removed in a certain order and orientation or network codes will ensue. Not for the novice mechanic but can be done by an experienced wrench in about 30 minutes. Numerous writeups are available on this replacement online. 


Potential Product Fitment Issues

There are two different steering wheels fitted to XC90 models resulting in two different steering angle sensors. This sensor fits:

2005+ XC90 models with DSTC and variant code EM04

A VIN number is needed to confirm fitment on this part. Contact our customer service department or your local dealership to confirm fitment. 

**Do note that there is a small set screw on the center of the unit. This is to prevent the sensor from becoming "un-clocked" in shipping. This should be removed upon installation.**


About Genuine Volvo

Everything IPD supplies under the "Genuine Volvo" designation are the factory original Volvo parts. These are the same quality parts that you will get in the blue Volvo branded box from a dealership. All Volvo supplied Genuine Volvo parts are made to specifications by Volvo and under their strict quality control guidelines.

Volvo relies on high-quality OEM manufactures such as Lemforder, Behr, Sachs, Bosch, Valeo, Siemens, VDO, Corteco, and many more to maintain its dedication to quality and safety.

IPD is the exclusive North American distributor for Genuine Classic Volvo parts outside of the Volvo Dealership network. We are proud of our Volvo heritage dating back to 1963, a reputation that is unmatched by others in the industry.

Many may not know this but Volvo in Latin roughly translates to "to roll".  The company was founded back in 1927 by Assar Gabrielsson and Gustaf Larsson as a spin-off from ball-bearing manufacturer SKF.  While the Volvo logo looks like the biology symbol for male, it's really the Swedish symbol for Iron. With a nod to its heritage in alloys, Volvo chose a logo that depicted a ring bisecting at one o’clock. Today Volvo is known around the world as one of the most iconic brands known for safety, longevity, and its enthusiast following.
