That metal ring around the bulb is the retainer which secured the headlight, so it wouldn't move. If it's still loose, there must be some missing parts on the assembly. 1962 was a long time ago-the year I graduated high school.

Car goes backwards even tho its in drive

try moving the gear selector to d1 or d2 it may just be 1 or 2, if this puts the vehicle into drive then your shift linkage of shift cable may need adjustment it could also be loose bolt on the shift shaft under the dash. use a flash light and look under the dash to find the shift cable, its a thick black cable that runs up to the back of the steering column the cable is then clipped on to the column and the cable comes out to a eyelet and is popped onto the shift shaft the bracket on on the shift shaft is held in be two bolts if these bolts come loose they can cause shift linkage problems. if they seem loose you can repair it just by removing each bolt , one at a time and putting lock tight on them then tighten them, be careful not to over tighten though. hope this helps!!
above is a picture of a shift cable so you know what you are looking for. sorry I could not find a picture of where it connects to or of it installed. good luck!

Replacing headlight on 1989 Toyota

if the turn signal cover is loose, and you are not really sure and dont want to break yours, visit your local junk yard and try the exact same thing there. But you could always try a rag and a flat head screwdriver, use the rag to cover the screwdriver and gently pry the turn signal lens out from the back of the housing. Usually the rubber grommets have just gotten old with age and weather. have you tried removing your headlight? although rare, somethimes the headlights need to come out first with certain models.

1971 ford f100 pickup neutral safety switch wiring color code

Ford Neutral Safety Switch; Ford Reverse Light Switch; Backup Light Switch.

The Neutral Safety Switch wires in my 1971 Ford F100 are orange with a blue stripe.
The Reverse, or Backup Light Switch wires are black with a red stripe.

There are two sets of two wires across this combined neutral safety and backup light switch, for a total of 4 wires. Photos are at the end of this post.

The switch for the 1971 Ford F100 pickup truck is the same as in many other years and models. For details, including parts numbers, see the following quote from an expert at Ford Truck Enthusiasts:

The neutral switch also controls the backup lights, and is the same 1967/77.

C7TZ-7A247-A .. Neutral/Backup Switch (Motorcraft SW-600)

There is no separate backup light switch..except on 1967/68 F350's.

Neutral switch location 1967/77:

The plastic half moon shaped neutral safety switch mounts on the outside lower portion of the steering column (NOT on the transmission!).

It's activated by an inverted Y shaped lever that snaps on the shift tube

D0TZ-7B097-B .. Lever, Neutral Switch Actuator = From FTE sponsor DIRECT FORD PARTS: Ford suggested retail price: $18.72 / FTE member net: $13.23.

The switch is also still available from Ford, but the website is down so I can't post the list & net prices. .

1978 is the FIRST year the F100/350's have the neutral switch mounted on the transmission. __________________

Driver side of the neutral / reverse switch showing the travel slot for the switch arm, the return tensioning spring, and the arm.

The front, steering wheel side of the neutral / reverse switch after removal from the steering column. The switch's two functions are actuated when the lever in the column moves the switch lever shown here to different positions as gears are selected.

The neutral switch is installed on the steering column near the firewall, with 5/8" bolts into the steering column (visible hole) and down column from a rectangular opening in the column housing. The actuating lever for the switch is attached to the gear shift shaft inside the housing; the lever is visibly protruding from the opening in this image.

Back of neutral / reverse switch, showing the wiring attachments. Black with red stripe is the backup light wiring, Orange with blue stripe is the neutral safety switch, it prevents starting in gears other than neutral & park.

Need to change the headlights on a 1995 pick clue even how to begin

You need to remove the chromed plastic grille piece to get at the screws that hold the headlamps in place. Open the hood, and there are four (I think) screws holding the top tabs of the grille in place. Just above the bumper, along the bottom of the grill, are a couple more screws. Once this grill piece is removed, you will see the screws holding the headlamp frames in place. (Make sure you don't move the adjustment screws. There is one at the top and one at the side set in a recess -- these aim the lights.) With the screws removed, the frame will come off and the headlamp can be removed and the electrical connector disconnected. Reverse everything to reinstall.

1995 Chevy G20 stalls.

Not sure if this will help. I have seen this happen!!! remove the cover under the steering column and locate the ignition switch. Get a flash light. You really need a flash light to see this. Set the E-Brake real good. While watching the ignition switch. (actual SWITCH not where the Key goes) . Turn the key back and forth with out starting and see if the switch is loose. (it has 2 hex head screws in it ) and is like 4 inches long with a bunch of wires in it and mounted the passenger side of the column under dash. If you cant see it move then try removing it from park and see if it moves. The switch is mounted on slotted holes. and if it is loose it will only move with the legnth of the column or front to back of vehicle. any ways if it is loose there is a way to put it back right ... as fallows:
key needs to be in the off position. loosen screws 1/2 turn each,
use your finger to push the switch up towards the key but not force it. like pushing a key on a key board. Tighten both screws and check it out. This seems like a long process to go through but it costs nothing but time.
