If you have to ask this question, the best thing to do, is let someone else do it. the airbag is an explosive device that has the ability to do physical harm, to yourself and possibly others around you.
though I deem this job a one on ability, I deem it a ten on safety due to the airbag being an explosive device, someone that is aware of the safety precautions should only do this job.

Is this a v6? It comes out through the wheel-well. So you have to safely raise and support the vehicle, remove the tire, remove tie rod end from steering knuckle. Remove wheel well liner. Take negative battery cable loose, take belt loose, take wiring connectors loose from generator, remove bolts from generator, remove generator.

I have a 2001 Mercury Cougar and the horn and cruise control stopped working at the same time. What could be the problem?


there is a contained loop of wire under the steering wheel called a clock spring. All of the steering wheel controls are wired through the clock spring. These wires can break causing your symptoms.

Check your fuse box for blown fuses.

I have a loose steering wheel and i don't know how to get to the nut on the shaft.


Okay.....I give up! Is this the nut on the universal drive in the engfine compartment? Or the nut on the shaft AT the steering wheel?
I f you're talking the shaft in the engine compartment, the steering shaft coming out of the steering gear has a rounded place on it that WHEN YOU SLIDE THE coupling shaft down over it,at an exact position,the tightening bolt will slide thru. don-ohio

2001 mercury cougar steering wheel?


Don't listen to that guy!!!! you need to take the plastic cover behind the steering wheel. there are two bolts holding the air bag in t30 (torx) then the air bag falls right off. then the steering wheel is held in by a 15 mm head bolt.
Warning: make sure battery is disconnected for at least 30 min before you mess with the air bag connector
