    I have a 2010 impreza 2.5i sedan.

    when i look up and order a clock spring it come back with this part number
    83196FG020
    which the connectors are wrong.

    When I looked up how to remove the clock spring, even the directions to remove the airbag pad were different,

    I have included picks of the one I am told to get vs the one in my car.

    Can anyone help me find the correct clock spring?

    If you want to take a chance on an airbag deployment, at least take a video.
    WARNING:
    Do NOT install aftermarket cheap offshore components that is connected to the airbag pyrotechnic device. .
    The last one I worked on (and work on many Subaru models) is OEM and worked perfect.
    You have the incorrect version, get OEM.
    Airbags deploy at 300 Km/sec.

    I am wondering if my steering column has been replaced, which would be why the whole air bag removal process is different, I am trying to identify the correct clock spring to put into this.

    Have a conversation with a smart Subaru Technician, maybe an identification (photos etc.) can be made with the correct part to fit what you have. At times, there are part number identifications on those components such as airbag, steering angle sensor, spiral spring, radio control switched etc. etc.
    If unsure, have a professional inspect the steering assembly.
    Playing with airbag systems is dangerous!
