Default Cruise Control Switch

2002 Ltd, Cruise Control does not function.

Dealer said need new switch. Several donors in local yard, so I figured easy swap.

Any tips or advice before I head to the yard and rip into a donor?

I have not looked yet on what it takes to pull the steering wheel, and no service manual to look at.

Cheers! MarkO

Default Re: Cruise Control Switch

You don't need to pull the steering wheel to get the switch off. The hard part is to pull the airbag off in the middle, to get access to the switch. The airbag are held on by arrow head like pins which press into the retainer clips. The arrow head shaped end spreads the clips and then the clips close in behind the point and hold ot securely. It is a pain, at least for me, to spread those clips to be able to pull the airbag off without destroying it. I probably just don't have the proper tools for it. Once the airbag is removed, the switch is really easy to remove. There is only one screw holding it on.
