On my 95 Windstar I've got an intermittant, almost constant, air bag light ON on my dashboard. Code scan points to a potentially bad clockspring in the column. Any advice or ideas on whether I should dive in and replace it, and if so, is there a step-by-step procedure posted somewhere? Thanks in advance,
Scott

Wish I could help, but I'm too old to have played with those...

Yeah, me too
Now if this was a '68 tilt column or a 4100 carb, NO PROBLEM!
I'm going to try the library. They were pretty good on having a shop manual for a Probe I did some head work on. A service station guy told me about $60 for the part and a couple hours to change it.

Clock spring is directly under steering wheel. Disconnect battery and allow a couple minutes before removing air bag and steering wheel. Make sure wheels are straight ahead before removing wheel. New clock spring will have a piece of tape on it to keep it centered untill installed. DO NOT remove tape until installed.
