Thanks for the input. In dealing with this so far, I was getting the feeling the problem is corroded contacts. I have serviced the pump, replaced both relays, and bought a switch / overhead...

I realize this is almost two years old, but did you ever find the issue. Mine is doing the intermittent thing right now as well.

Thanks for the info. I guess I will have to rough it and reach all the way over to the radio when I want to turn the volume up. On to the next idea.

It happens where I live too. Here, new Camaros are bad, but the worst are other Mustang drivers. Anyone who knows anything about Mustangs can look at mine and see it is a V6 -- it is a cruiser, not...

Check for binding. Lube pivots with lithium grease or spray. Change the fluid in the pump. Look for kinks in the hydraulic tubing going to that side. If it still lags, it is probably a bad...

'10-'14 GT 500 Steering Wheel

I am thinking about putting a GT 500 steering wheel in my '06 so I can have audio and phone controls on the wheel. If you have one, what color are the indicator lights? Are they green or blue? The...

I have wondered that too. Different propellant maybe? To relieve anxiety, you would think Ford and all the other auto manufactures would have mentioned why passenger-side airbags are not involved.

No kidding. The '05-'08 steering wheel looks like a bumper car steering wheel. I figured one of the aftermarket companies would have come up with a viable alternative.

Ask your friends. Someone you know has a jig saw. They might even help. If you have to buy one, a $30 Harbor Freight jig saw is a lot cheaper than a Procharger. Don't cheap out on the details.

Are you talking about the fiberboard thing that covers the spare tire? If that is the case, a new one will be fiberboard and will break or the hinge will eventually rip out just like the old one. I...

I have wanted to do that and put some big assed tires on mine since the day I got it. If I didn't have a V6 and an automatic, I would have. Be sure to post pictures of it finished.

We are lucky it wasn't an American company that contracted the airbags. They would have filed for bankruptcy the moment it hit and everyone would be left holding the bag.

I bet you are going to find tire wear too. Take it to a shop and have it checked out. BL817 is right, it is probably tie rod ends. In any case it will require an alignment.

I shouldn't be too hard. Take you time and don't force anything. If need be, take notes and/or take pictures. Oh yeah, wear long sleeves. The thicker the better.
