Help remove P/Steering Sensor/Switch

AU1 Falcon...Need to remove and replace the Power Steering sensor, but haven't got enough room to get any tool in there. Does anyone know how to get it out or if there is a certain tool needed. Tried to call Ford but they're already gone home.

The old one cracked inside and was leaking fluid out of the plug.

Re: Help remove P/Steering Sensor/Switch

its hard to get to but a normal shortish (say 100mm) open ended spanner will do the job. Become a contortionist, its the only way.

Re: Help remove P/Steering Sensor/Switch

EB to EL are notorious for those damn things ! I had to replace one in by EB and my EF and they are a bitch to take off. They wear out really quickly if you lock to one side too much the buildup pressure proly is too much for the switch but I could be wrong

Re: Help remove P/Steering Sensor/Switch

often its a dryed up o-ring that perishes and cracks rather than the switch itself.
