Hi

This is a bit of a task, so I hope you're feeling brave! And I'm doing this from memory so bear with me!

First of all, disconnect the battery negative lead and then have a cup of coffee for 20 mins or so to give the airbag a chance to disarm.

Next, remove the upper and lower steering column plastic cowelling, unplug the airbag wiring, and then put the key in the ignition and release the steering lock.

Now, look at the back of the steering wheel around where the steering columnn goes in or thereabouts. You should see a number of bolts or screws which can be accessed one at a time by turning the steering wheel to bring each one into view. These are holding the airbag unit onto the steering wheel.

Undo and remove them all and then VERY CAREFULLY remove the airbag unit from the front of the steering wheel, and carry it with the airbag facing AWAY from you, and put it somwhere safe, FACE UP.

You should now have access to the steering wheel nut and its straight forward from here on, but remember, you will no longer have a drivers airbag, and you may need to have the light put out when the ECU realises you have removed the airbag.

Very best regards

Geordie

SOURCE: how come starter keeps going out on my 2003 ford

Most likely this is a heat problem. There are several exhaust shields for the Catalytic converter and pipes. Over time these parts can fall off due to rust or idling in Traffic. If you drive in a Metro area, sitting in Traffic will overheat the parts.

There are some aftermarket products used for wrapping Headers. They are a Flameproof cloth which you wrap around the nearby exhaust pipes. Or look at the underside of your car for missing parts. You may want someone who has seen other Ford Taurus' as they would know what is missing.

Another possibility is overadvanced timing. Ask a Dealer for any Service Bulletins about your problem. Even though your car is older there may be some info. With overadvanced timing the starter is fighting more compression than normal.

What is the Shroud on the steering column of a 2003 Ford Escape and what tool can I use to remove it


Steering column shroud is the plastic cover just below the steering wheel that tidies away from sight the switches, wiring and connectors beneath.

Most shrouds are sectional and held in place with a combination of partially hidden screws, disguised screws and internal clips. Some shrouds aren't sectional and the steering wheel must be removed as a first step towards removal.

Please be aware modern steering wheels have the airbag and beneath the shroud is the wiring and connections. It isn't wise to fool around in there unless you know what you are doing.

High beams do not work


It is most likely the mulitfunction switch (turn signal switch) in the steering column. It's not too hard to replace as the steering wheel doesn't need to be removed. Take the covers off from around the column behind the steering wheel by removing the 3 screws with a torx bit. This will expose the switch which is held on with a couple torx screws also. Unplug the three connectors and then put the new part in. This is a common problem with Fords.
Hope this helps! :)

2003 ford victoria horn not working, what do I do I changed the fuse and I have a the police package


In most cases this problem is caused by the rotating ribbon circuit contact under the steering wheel having a broken filament, the part is known as a clock spring contact, u will need to properly disarm the airbag and remove the steering wheel to access the part. WARNING: Failure to follow factory Airbag disarming protocol can result in an unexpected Airbag deployment and possible serious personnel injury
