92 mercury topaz tilt steering problem
ya know, when these older cars start going, they just start going, one problem after another. Well now I have 3.
Not only do do I have the gear shift/transmission problem, today while working on it, I adjusted the tilt stearing and it broke. Just started flopping there..
Anyone know where I can find a diagram of this?
And can someone please tell me how to replace it?
Guys, im up in michigan where the economy sucks, so I have to keep this thing running as long as I can and money is tight. If I could I would just junk this car and buy another one but thats not possible right now, so I have to keep it running for at least 1 more year.
Thanks for any help!
More info added this evening. The U joint, where the tilt steering is, both pins have sheared. The only thing holding it in place is the tilt mechinism and the wheel nut.
Is there a bushing or uni joint kit, or pin kit, that I can get to replace those pins, or do I need to replace the whole steering wheel shaft?
