Just Empty Every Pocket

Literally! Everytime I turn around this beast wants more. Now it needs a new ignition switch!
Ugh! I have the part, but the damn switch is located on top of the steering column so I have to drop it to install the switch. Brilliant!

Here are some picts I took while it was still mobile.


  1. No fun. I can remember when I was still working at the Lincoln/Mercury dealership when Ford came out with an ignition switch recall for almost their entire line of vehicles. I have literally changed hundreds of them.
    One trick I came up with to get to the Torx bit screws on them is to find the correct bit size and stick it in a 1/4 inch ratcheting wrench . Makes it a lot easier because it gets in that low clearance spot and gives you the leverage to break the screws loose.

    Good luck!

  2. I used to have one of those. I loved it until the door fell off, lol!

  3. didn't you know you are to buy a whole new auto and not to replace the switch?
