Question about 1966 Ford Mustang
You will need to remove the steering wheel from the post with a puller. Once you find the switch inside remove anything in your way and make note of where it goes. There are usually three screws holding the switch in. Once free, you need to unplug the lower harness connector and thread it up through the column. Match the wiring on the old switch to that on the new one. If the new one has a connector is identical and wires match, use it as is. If the connector or wiring is different, match each wire, starting at the switch location and place that wire in position in the connector. It helps to write down each location both at the switch and connector so if you get lost in the middle you can have a reference to go back to.
Once wiring is correct, thread the connector and harness back down through the column and finish putting it back together.
I would check operation before putting wheel back on. Also it helps to mark the wheel position to the shaft so it does not end up being uneven and not centered.(do that before takingwheel off) Also don't hammer on shaft to get wheel off definitely use a puller.
