    That gets the bottom half loose, and them separated. The top half has something holding from underneath, near the ignition tumbler.

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.

My 97 ford ranger has an electrical problem. The windshield wipers and washer fluid are on full speed when I start the truck and will not shut off.. pulled the fuses for temp solve... please help


Hi, the likely problem is a failed switch. Remove the switch according to instructions below and then start the truck again. If the wipers stay off, replace the switch. If they still come on, please get back to me.


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION See Figures 1 and 2

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove the steering wheel.
  2. On vehicles equipped with tilt wheel, remove the tilt lever.
  3. On vehicles equipped with tilt wheel, remove the steering column collar by pressing on the collar from the top and bottom while removing the collar.

Fig. Fig. 1: To remove the tilt column control lever, simply rotate it counterclockwise until removed

  1. Remove the instrument panel trim cover retaining screws. Remove the trim cover.
  2. Remove the 2 screws (#3 in Fig 2) from the bottom of the steering column shroud. Remove the bottom half of the shroud by pulling the shroud down and toward the rear of the vehicle.
  3. If the vehicle is equipped with automatic transmission, move the shift lever as required to aid in removal of the shroud. Lift the top half of the shroud from the column.
  4. On 1991 automatic transmission equipped models, disconnect the selector indicator actuation cable by removing the screw from the column casting and the plastic plug at the end of the cable.
  5. Remove the 2 self tapping screws (#3 in Fig 2) that retain the combination switch to the steering column casting. Disengage the switch from the casting.
  6. Disconnect the 3 electrical connectors, using caution not to damage the locking tabs. Be sure not to damage the PRNDL cable.
  7. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure. Torque the combination switch retaining screws to 18-27 inch lbs. (2-3 Nm).

REMOVAL
WARNING: To avoid serious or fatal injury on vehicles equipped with airbags, disable the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) before attempting any steering wheel, steering column, airbag, seat belt tensioner, impact sensor, or instrument panel component diagnosis or service. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative (ground) cable, then wait two minutes for the system capacitor to discharge before performing further diagnosis or service. This is the only sure way to disable the SRS. Failure to take the proper precautions could result in accidental airbag deployment.

1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.
2. Remove the screw (2) that secures the tilt steering column knob (1) and remove it from the tilt actuator (3) on the left side of the column.
3. From below the steering column, remove the two outboard screws that secure the upper column shroud (1) to the lower shroud (3).
4. Using hand pressure, press inward on both sides of the upper shroud above the parting line of the lower shroud to release the snap features that secure the two shroud halves to each other.
5. Remove the upper shroud from the lower shroud and the steering column.
6. Remove the one center screw that secures the lower shroud to the steering column (4).
7. Remove the lower shroud from the steering column.
8. Disconnect the wire harness connector (2) from the back of the multi-function switch housing (1).
9. Rotate the steering wheel far enough to access and remove the two screws (4) that secure the switch to the multi-function switch mounting housing (3).
10. Grasp the switch control stalk and pull it toward the left side of the vehicle to remove the switch from the mounting housing.

INSTALLATION
1. Slide the multi-function switch (1) into the multi-function switch mounting housing (3) from the left side. Be certain that the alignment pins on the top and bottom of the switch are properly engaged in the channels of the mounting housing.
2. Rotate the steering wheel far enough to install and tighten the two screws (4) that secure the switch to the mounting housing. Tighten the screws to 2 N·m (20 in. lbs.).
3. Reconnect the wire harness connector (2) to the back of the switch housing.
4. Position the lower shroud (3) onto the steering column (4).
5. From below the steering column, install and tighten the one center screw that secures the lower shroud to the steering column. Tighten the screw to 2 N·m (20 in. lbs.).
6. Position the upper shroud (1) onto the steering column over the lower shroud. On vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission, be certain to engage the gearshift lever gap hider into the opening in the right side of both shroud halves.
7. Align the snap features on the upper shroud with the receptacles in the lower shroud and apply hand pressure to snap them together.
8. Install and tighten the two outboard screws that secure the upper shroud to the lower shroud. Tighten the screws to 2 N·m (20 in. lbs.).
9. Position the tilt steering column knob (1) onto the tilt adjuster actuator (3) on the left side of the steering column, then install and tighten the screw (2) to secure the knob to the actuator. Tighten the screw to 2 N·m (20 in. lbs.).
10. Reconnect the battery negative cable.
