1986 lincoln matk vii left front air spring will not lift up to level position

Have you checked all air lines, are they all tight & have the orange O-rings on them, this includes the one that goes to the top of the solenoid on the air bag that you're having the problem with, Then you might want to inspect the air bags itself, for leaks and cracks. Don't forget to turnoff the air ride system, the button is in the trunk before you jack up the car. Finally, there is a way to check the system without any special tools, just a jump wire. Let me know if you like to know how to do so.

  2. Disable the Inflatable Restraint (SIR) system. (see procedure below)
  3. Remove the steering wheel.
  4. Remove the tilt lever close out plate.
  5. Remove the retaining screw from the lower steering column trim covers.
  6. Tilt the trim cover down and slide rearward in order to disengage the locking tabs.
  7. Remove the lower steering column trim covers.
  8. Remove the retaining screws from the upper steering column trim cover.


    Fig. Lift the trim cover in order to gain access to the lock cylinder access hole.

  2. Align the lock cylinder retaining tab and the position tab with the slots in the lock housing.
  3. Completely push the lock cylinder into the lock housing.
    NOTE Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.
  4. Install the retaining screws to the upper steering trim cover and tighten the screws to 31 inch lbs. (3.5 Nm).

2000 airbag code flashing 47 had very minor accident in rear

probably its just coincidence but the accident dont have much to do with the error code .. This is a common problem ,, basically there is a device called a clock spring in the steering wheel, this device is like a bearing with a coil that turns with the steering yet allows the air bag in the steering to be powered. Now this has brushes and wires and a bearing fitted in such a manner the steering can turn freely without breaking contact. Well eventually the wires break and it needs replacing. This involves removing the steering and replacing the spring. I strongly suggest you get a professional to do this as there is no room for error reasons being
  1. the clock spring needs to be set propperly 1 1/2 turns left and 1 1/2 turns right if not your steering will not function as it should and you wont be able to make turns left or right and over turn on the other end (big problem) as it can lead to accidents.
  2. you can discharge the air bags and that's bad as its expensive to replace, not mention your air bags use gun powder to discharge ,, this can cause critical injuries m burns etc..
  3. if the wiring is wrong , you can blow the ecu as the ecu directly controls the air bags on a 12 volt relay.. Well i guess you get the point.
simply put your's needs replacing..

The steering wheel on my 1993 dodge dakota is sticky and ive tried everything i can think of to clean it with to no avail. It's almost like it permeates out from the wheel.

The problem may be that it's leather. If so get something made for leather. Sometimes the heat in the vehicle will cause a change in it. You may just have to get a steering wheel cover.

What is the material of the air bag on a Honda fit and does any medical problems in it

The airbag is bullet proof kevlar, and is needed to contain the explosion that inflates it.
It has lots of medical problems.
One is that the massive impact can break your neck.
Another is that the gases produced by the explosive are very toxic.
Sounds like an easy law suit.

2002 saturn columb is lose. need to pull steering wheel, but has air bag. never done it before.

Well , Let me start here if your saturn has tilt first check the lever that lets the stearing wheel go up and down . If that isnt the problem then first you need see if 1 the column its self is loose than you need to remove the plate were your hood release cable is located once you remove the 7mm bolts and the shield look under dash were stearing column is and thier is 4 13 mm bolts that actually hold it up tight against the dash if they are tight follow the stearing column down towards gas pedal thier are two bolts that that go through a bracket from left to right on one side its a 45 mm torxs male and a 14 mm nut check them for tightness if any are loose retighten to factory specs and use lock tight
to remove air bag first unplug batterie then thier are 4 slots on bach side of stearing column I use two flated head screw drivers and push one side and pull out gently once released do the other side the same way ,then thier will be a yellow plug unplug it and air bag is removed
from my experience if the bolts are tight u need a new stearing column witch you can buy used at a resonable price GASTON AUTO GASTON SOUTH CAROLINA i FOUND HAS THE BEST DEALS FOR SATURN

3. Cut along leading edge with a coping saw.
4. Smooth the cut edge with 100-grit sandpaper to create a tight joint
