Default Electronic Variable Orifice (EVO) Sensor replacement

Does anyone know how to replace one of these on a 1997 C1500 pickup? I'm not getting much support from the Chevy pickup forum. They say it'* easy, and a cheap part, but that'* it!

Yes! That'* what I needed, bonkjmma.

Now, would any of the GM guys be so kind to look up the part number for me? gmpartsdirect.com doesn't have the number listed (I'm probably searching wrong) and the stupid dealer won't tell me the number.

It'* officially called a "steering wheel position sensor" by the dealership. This would be for a 1997 C1500, short box, automatic.

A part number would be MUCH appreciated! Then I can buy it from gmpartsdirect.com.

There was a bulletin released a long time ago regarding that sensor. The part # in the bulletin is 26076106.

Hope that helps!

bonkjmma - Thank you for looking up the number! However, gmpartsdirect.com doesn't show it as being valid.

No biggie, we'll see what mike1053 comes back with!

Thanks again for all the help!!!
