Steering Column Repair/Dimmer Switch Install for 92 Thunderbird


Well I have ran into the problem, as in restoring any older car of electrical parts. The dimmer is multi-purpose; headlights, wipers & turn signals. This is my first ever restoration & I've never replaced this kind of part before. So, my question is, how do I access my steering column to change my dimmer switch?? Thanks so much!!

Hello Jennifer:

This is one of the easiest jobs you will ever do on this car.  The multiswitch is attached to the column with 2 -20 torx screws that are accessible as soon as you remove the two covers on the column.  the covers are held together by 3 phillips screws from the bottom holding the covers together.
That's it
 I have attached a picture of the switch you are replacing and you will see how easy this one will be for you.
Good luck and enjoy the restoration!
