just sharing my tips for any1 having trouble.

alot of u would have been through the frustrating task of changing a power steering switch. i just replaced mine...took me an hour just to figure out how to get in there with a spanner.

i ended up going down to bunnings and buying a cheapie $4 set of spanners (5-6 in the pack going up to 15mm). i needed the 14mm for the switch and the good thing about them was is they r quite thin.

that was the only thing i could get onto the switch as my normal spanners are too thick. didn't have to cut the spanner either. went in from the top with my hand behind the steering column shaft and thru behind the extractors lol. quite painful but it did the trick.

now there's no more leaks...for the meantime lol

I found getting them out is a b**ch so I just get vise grips on it and crush the bastard.

new switch and o-ring and a tiny bit of #3 on the thread only..... its going no where! and yes.. everyone should have a set of cheapy ground down spanners!



Carefree, we may not be number one, but we're up there.
