Trying to pull steering wheel to repair broken blinker switch

After removing the steering wheel itself and the bolts/bracket it is fastened to, I removed the bowl, and the main nut on what I assume to be the main shaft. However, there is an aluminum piece with a larger round piece behind it that I cannot get off. Do I need to utilize a gear puller on these? Do they screw off? I have tried to loosen them by turning them with no luck. Any ideas?

Do either of you have insight on trouble shooting if the blinker does not work, but the bulb is fine as it comes on when breaking? The left blinker works, but not the right... Seems to me it would be the blinker switch, and I am at the same point of trying to figure out how to take off the backing plate...

Yes, if ur talking about the backing plate, u will need to push on it very hard, there is a round clip u need to take off, a small screwdriver will do, i have actually used my feet to push it in, lol, very uncomfortable position or if u have another person to help u that would work too, u need to get that clip off before it will come apart

I have to replace my ignition switch, trying to see how exactly to do it. also whats the best way and safest way putting on wheels. how long of lug bolts do i need for aftermarket wheels do i need spacers...


Remove the steering wheel center portion

if it has a driver airbag you will have to loosen the screws around the back of the steering wheel

if not the hooter potion should just clip off

once off remove the center bolt of the steering (unplug the airbag plugs if applicable)

mark where the steering wheel was located on the shaft so that you dont put it back scew.

remove the steering colum covers that go around the indicator and wiper switches.(there are usually a few scres that go in from underneath

Remove and unplug the wiper and indicator switches (usually just fastens with three very small screw from the front.

now you will see the ignition housing.

At the top side of the steering colum you will see a plate that pulles the ignition housing against the steering colum.

this plate is fastened with "break off bolts" the heads of the bolts break off once fastened as to prevent thieves loosening the ignition lock.

to loosen these screws use a centre punch and a hammer and work them in an anti clockwise direction.

Unplug the ignition switch at the back of the ignition.

please note that if the vehicle has airbags you should not switch on the ignition whilst the air bag is unplugged, this will activate the airbag fault lamp on the instrument cluster.

Install in reverse order.

How to remove two pins holding ignition clyinder lock tumbler from 1994 mercury tracer


Removal & Installation


Before continuing with this procedure, make sure to have available a new steering wheel retaining bolt and two lock cylinder retaining bolts. Once removed, these parts lose their torque holding ability (or retention capability) and must not be reused.

  1. If equipped, disarm the air bag system and disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the steering wheel.
  3. Remove the combination switch.
  4. Unplug the wiring connector to the ignition switch.
  5. Remove the ignition and shifter interlock cable mounting bracket bolt and position the assembly to one side.
  6. Remove the four steering column bracket bolts and lower the steering column.
  7. Cut a groove in the ignition cylinder bracket bolts with a chisel and hammer or use a similar method.
  8. Using a screwdriver, remove and discard the bracket bolts.
  9. Remove the ignition switch lock cylinder and bracket.

Unfasten the ignition and shifter interlock cable mounting bracket bolt, and position the assembly to one side



c17hydro_35.gif

Use a chisel and hammer to cut a groove in the ignition cylinder bracket bolts-1991-96 models shown; 1997-99 models similar


To install:

  1. Install the new ignition switch and the bracket into position on the steering column tube.
  2. Install the new lock cylinder bolts and tighten the bolts enough to hold the switch in position.
  3. Check for proper switch operation by rotating the key to each position. If necessary, reposition the lock cylinder until it operates properly.
  4. If positioned properly, tighten the retaining bolts until the bolt head shears off.
  5. Raise and position the steering column. Tighten the bracket bolts to 80-124 inch lbs. (9-14 Nm).
  6. If equipped with tilt column, remove the upper mounting bracket retaining pin.
  7. Position the interlock cable bracket. Install and tighten the retaining bolt to 35-53 inch lbs. (4-6 Nm).
  8. Attach the wiring connector to the ignition switch.
  9. Install the combination switch.
  10. Connect the negative battery cable.
  11. Confirm operational status of the air bag system by turning the ignition key to the RUN position and visually monitoring the air bag indicator lamp in the instrument cluster. The indicator lamp should illuminate for approximately 6 seconds and then turn OFF. If the indicator lamp does not illuminate, stays ON, or flashes at any time, a fault has been detected by the air bag diagnostic monitor.
  12. Check the steering wheel, horn and combination switch functions for proper operation.

Blinker/light stem fallen out of steering column


CENTER the steering wheel/wheels straight ahead. Remove the air bag using the proper Torx driver. Unplug the wiring connector. Using the proper socket, undo the big nut that holds the steering wheel on. Now, bang the steering wheel left/right/left/right hands until the steering wheel comes loose. Now, here is where it gets a little tricky. There is a round black circle with a yellow tag with red letters. Put tape on it to keep it from rotating right or left. Remove the 4 screws. DO NOT TURN THE ROUND THING. If you turn it, you may damage it. Now, remove the screws that hold on the headlamp switch. Unplug the connector & bolt in the new switch. Easy, as long as you do NOT move the setting on the round thing. This is the air-bag "clockspring".
