RE: The tariff classification of a Upper Steering Coupling from Liechtenstein

Dear Ms. Vrabel:

In your letter dated April 12, 2000 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You submitted pictures with its description. All of the parts are the Upper Steering Coupling and perform the same function with different sizes and shapes and are identified as the following Part Numbers:

Use of the Part: the driver of the vehicle transmits torque and rotational direction through the steering wheel. The steering wheel is connected to the column shaft by a bolt. The column shaft then is connected to the intermediate shaft through this coupling. The intermediate shaft is then connected to the steering gear, which turns the wheels.

The applicable subheading for the Upper Steering Coupling will be 8708.99.7360, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Parts and accessories of the motor vehicles of headings 8701 to 8705: Other parts and accessories: Other: Other: Other: Parts for steering systemsOther.
