jrose Yup, I did mine about a year ago and it's still working just fine. Rather than remove the headlight, however, I removed the left front wheel and the inner fender liner to get at the control box. It was really easy. I also used an ignition point file rather than sand paper. Old school do-it-yourselfers like me remember when our cars had ignition points that often had to be filed smooth and then reset. We were always told to use a point file designed for that purpose rather than sandpaper because sandpaper could leave embedded particles. In short, the write-up here was most helpful to me and I couldn't ask more for a result at what little this "fix" cost me. By the way, my toolbox no longer had an ignition point file in it, and the local Advance Auto had no idea what I was talking about., however, was able to provide me with such a file.

lvsmustangs Hey guys I've never worked on a 4cylinder before and to be honest it seems a little intimidating. From reading this thread I think this is my problem also. On start up it sounds like a repeated clicking sound coming from the front drivers side. I don't have any check engine lights and the car seems to work fine. I only hear it on start up and then goes away is this that box???? I've had the car for 6mo now and I really like it and am going to start fixing it up. Good thread and information.

amawds Typically 110 shipped in the U.S but I can be persuaded with a little arm twisting. Out of stock at the moment. Waiting on time to make another run.
