Question about 1998 Ford Explorer
My lights go out while driving down the road. I need to change the turn signal switch which also has the dimmer switch on it for the lights. Can u tell me how to pull off the steering wheel
You don't have to remove the steering wheel. Take the plastic covers off around the steering column then you will see 2 screws holding the switch to the side of the column.

Disconnect the negative terminal on the battery, using a wrench. Remove the upper and lower steering wheel covers directly behind the steering wheel using a Phillips screwdriver. Lower the steering column by removing the three 15-mm nuts in the support bracket, using a 15-mm socket.
Make sure the ignition switch is in the lock position. Remove the two screws in the dimmer switch, using a socket. Allow it to hang free. Disconnect the electrical connector on the ignition switch.
Remove the three screws in the ignition switch and lift the switch up and off the protruding actuation rod.
Install the ignition switch, making sure that the protruding rod is inserted into the hole in the bottom of the ignition switch. Install the three screws and tighten them. Pull the plastic locating pin out of the switch and throw it away.
Plug the electrical connector into the ignition switch. Install the dimmer switch by making sure the rod is inserted properly in the turn signal lever cavity. Hold the dimmer switch and insert the rod into the switch cavity and place the switch against the ignition switch bracket. Insert the two screws and lightly push the dimmer switch toward the turn signal lever until all slack is removed. Tighten the two screws.
Lift the steering column into place under the dashboard. Install the securing nuts and tighten. Install the two halves of the steering column.
