Ford Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Not sure what you are doing,,, did the truck not come with NAV ,,and now you have installed it and want to also install the steering wheel radio switches ???
if this is the case ,,, then you may have to replace the clock spring also ,, it will have the wireing in it for the radio switch that run down the steering column ,
we can go back and forth on this page
Ok,,, I work at a Ford dealer in AZ,,, and my parts dept is not open yet ,,, so give me some time and I will get you the part numbers you need ,,,I think you will only need the steering wheel switches and the clock spring ,, but let me make sure and I will get back to you later today
Thanks .. Chris
Hi there ,,, sent the info out to you that day ,, guess it did not take ,, will try again ,, site has been having problems ,,,
the switches for the steering wheel are $87 , part number 7C3Z-9C888-AA
the clock spring is about $112,,, part number 8C3Z-14A664-B
The steering wheel switches are easy to install ,, get under the switches and pull them out ,,, then unplug them ,, and install the new ones ---see below
as for the clock spring ,,, you have to remove the air bag,, remove the steering wheel ,, and the upper and lower steering column bezels.. see below
remove the tilt lever
then the three screws from the lower bezel , see number 7
then remove the upper and lower steering column bezels, number 1 and 6
then look at the back side of the steering wheel , there are three clips you can see on the back side that need to be released with a big flat bladed screw drivers , twist the screw driver to release all three and the air bag will pop off ,, then unplug it -see below
then remove the bolt from the center of the steering wheel and and the steering wheel will come off ...
under the steering wheel is the clock spring ,, remove its two bolts and install the new one ---see below
Well to tell you the truth , I have never done this before on this unit ,,that is, had a customer come in with a 2008 F350 and want the radio switches on the steering wheel installed when it did not have them , but I have done this on other units from Ford,,, and in the past the only two things that needed to be replaced are the cruse switches and the clock spring ,,, the dash harness between the steering column and the radio had the wireing in it already to make it work ,, you see its easier for Ford to make one dash harness for each unit that has all the wireing in it for everything the unit can come with ,, and if you want to add something , then you add to the dash harness .
3600 is the base part number for the steering wheel,, that little harness between the switches and the clock spring must be only serviced with the steering wheel assembly,,
I work at a Ford dealer and I think I have something for you ,,, give me a call
