1989 Ford Econoline Van 5.8l
Need help getting the old switch out of the steering column. It won’t fit! Do I need to take the individual wires out of the plastic connector to thread the wires through the steering column? Of course, I could cut off the connector for the old switch unit. But I would still need to thread the new one through the steering column.
Here is what Chilton’s says:
“8. On vans with a tilt column, remove the connector plug before removing the switch from the column. The shift socket opening is not large enough for the plug connector to pass through”.
I’d appreciate any help!
