No. The steering wheel does not need to be removed to replace the dimmer switch. Remove the screws under steering column and remove the upper and lower panels.

The Panel Dimmer Control used to brighten the instrument panel also controls the dome lamp. Rotate the thumb wheel fully to the right, past the detent, dome light locks on. Try rotating it to the left.
It's next to your headlight switch. goodluck

How do you change the dimmer/turn signal level in stering colum


most just push into the wiper switch.Disconnect battery negative First wait 3-5 minutes Then on the back side of steering wheel is are the retaining screws that hold the air bag to the steering wheel once removed disconnect wires and place pad side down then remove steering wheel, now you are looking at the air bag cable reel mark it position and remove without turning it. If installed wrong it will break. Remove lock plate then turn signal switch then you can see the handle nub with a small screwdriver pry nub out of wiper switch. and reassemble.

Changing turn signal switch 1986 lincoln town car.


Get a manual like chiltons or haynes to guide you through this one...Air bag needs to be disabled and yes, wheel needs to be removed.You will need a wheel puller and a tool to remove the steering lock plate. The arm either unscrews from or is screwed to the switch...either way, it's removable.

it sounds like the wheel bearings are gone first of all put the car front end on jack stands secure the rear wheels remove the tires take the caliper off remove the cup and carter pin and take the rotor off and pry the ring around the back side out and remove the bearing and this should solve the problem also while you have the car up check the lower ball joints also
