Australian Car Repair Issues? Ask an Auto Mechanic for Answers ASAP
I have been a master mechanic for over 35 years and am happy to help you with this.
So are you around the car right now?
Try depressing the pin #2 in the diagram below and see it it turns.
sorry for the delay. its a tad bit late here and i had to squeeze one out...lol.
let me take a look at the diagrams i have and will get straight back at ya ok?
Do ya have the switch removed to take a look inside?
Mate, the biggest issue with these switches is that the casting inside the column is askew and Ford says to replace the whole damn colomn to correct it. I say NOT. My associate and me have used a procedue similiar to the video below to remedy this without having to replace the whole column.
Now mate, keep your sharp hat on because the video goes quickly and i dont want to spin it off, but as you will see once you have the column out and on a good work surface its really straight forward.
Now, because im not there to know the history, it may have have an issue that lead up to this point, so after the first video plays, let the second one play. We try to cover all bases in one swoop.
I think this will get you tracking down the right path my friend but if you have any further questions im always here everyday. Im in the USA so we have a bit of time diff ut thats cool with me if its ok with you.
Did you have any further questions?
If not. kindly use the stars to rate my service. It is VERY important to me that you do that.
Thanks for asking!
You are correct that Ford replaces the entire column instead of any repairs so there aren't instructions.
Best wishes my friend!
