Default Steering Angle Sensor install help

alright guys and girls finished the 06' STI swap on my bugeye and the DCCD wasnt/inst working.. pulled the codes and it came up steering angle sensor and brake switch... so i finally buckled down and bought a new steering angle sensor from the dealership. it didnt come with any instructions to follow. so i just want to be certain i dont mess up a $350 non-returnable sensor.

is there anything i need to know before i install it? or is it as simple as unscrewing the old one and screwing in the new one?


side note info... the entire car is wired as an 06' STI, including all sensors and modules, so the DCCD is full 06' spec.and i search high and low for the answer...but couldnt find one.

note: I haven't done this before...
Usually, you just plug and play, but sometimes you need the fancy dealership computer to program the new sensor... but usually a good parts person will tell you that when you buy it from them. Very few sensors need calibration when installed. Is it part of the clockspring? I would hold out for someone who has done it before. If no one else helps you out, I would say make sure the steering wheel is straight when you put it on/in. GLWI

EDIT: 2 things... did you ask if maybe you just needed to program it after the swap? and, maybe you should post this in the swap forum.

from everything ive looked into, there is no calibration or anything needed.. hopefully..lol... the DCCD system "works", but some parts came off of a wrecked car, and Steering Angle Sensors seem to be notorious for failing, especially after accidents.. so im hoping it was just a bad sensor and the new one will fix it... we shall see..... the codes only pull up the SAS and brake switch.... i think im just going to try and install it and see what happens
