Well, I hope you had better luck than I did with repairing the contacts
on this ass'y but FWIW here's how to do it:
Take a pocketknife and pry the cover button off the end of the turn
signal switch.Do this by laying the blade across the cap edge and gently
pry it off. It's plastic and comes off pretty easily.
After that, theres a phillips screw securing the knob onto the lever.
Remove the screw to access the contacts.
Be advised that the contacts bend -very easily-! Too much pressure here
will probably bend them beyond repair. After the repair is made and
tested, apply a small amount of dielectric grease and reassemble.
I bent mine beyond (reliable) repair and ended up taking it to the
dealership for their warrantied repair,spending about $85 in the
process. That was 5 years ago and it hasn't missed a lick,since.
 Good Luck!

There is a cap on the tip of the turn signal stalk.  You need a very thin
flat-blade screwdriver, or a penknife to pry it up.  Underneath that,
there is a phillips screw that holds the switch assembly in.

If you take out the screw, the assembly will slide out.  It's basically a
black plastic cylinder which is about as long as its diameter.  There is a
spring-loaded brass rod that spans the diameter of the cylinder assembly,
and its job is to make the "clicks" on the intermittent washer.  This rod
tend to fall out and get lost, so be careful.

At the other end of the assembly are a couple of spring-loaded prongs used
to make connections.  Take care not to bend or break them.

Once you slide out the assembly, you'll see a metal disc on the inside of
the turn signal stalk.  It is basically a set of tiny connectors for the
metal prongs to contact.

The lube that Ford installed with this setup tends to get dirty and block
these microconnections.  If you clean all the gunk out (it took me three
tries) and put it back together with a little dielectric grease,
everything should work fine.

Good luck!


Bill Wagner

So are the pics still up?  I just did a quick look and couldn't find
anything.  I seem to have a hard time finding lots of things on that
site, but it's just me I'm sure.

Yeah, you can put up a link.  The pics used to be listed at the top
of the main page of the site but has been bumped off as more items
were added.  The site is updated every 2-4 days.

I've developed a leak from my oil plug. I tried tightening the plug but I
think it got stripped out last time the oil was changed. What is the best
fix for this?
