Re: 86' Ranger Turn signal switch on column broken
I did it! I replaced my turn signal switch…… No easy task, unless I was a ford mechanic with all the right tools!!!
I disconnected the battery to be safe.
There are two lock down plastic tabs on each of the two wiring harnesses going into the switch.
On the Top harness,
Top lock down is visible, and the other is underneath the same piece.
On the bottom harness,
You can see the one from underneath, but there is one more hidden inside of a narrow well on the underside of this peice...GOOD LUCK with that one, I had to break that tab to be able to remove this bottom harness.
The switch part number is the Autozone Duralast UDS425 Combination Switch.
I also removed my old arm out of the switch which was just the metal rod, because my lever handle broke off some years ago.
Ford can get this arm/rod, but it would cost $20.00. Does anyone know where to get the arm lever cheaper than 20.00? I already called Autozone and Pep Boys, and no luck. Thanks and good luck!
