Great Post

2001 Ford Focus SE Station Wagon. Hey, I used your instructions to replace my clockspring because my turn signals would not cancel. Sure enough, the black plastic tab on the clockspring that cancels the turn signals was broken off. Using your instructions, it took me only 45 minutes and that was because it was on a hot day and I took some rest breaks. Also used the Ford Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) #04-5-5 which indicates that a 9mm spacer has to be installed to prevent the problem from reoccurring. Bought the Clockspring from O'Reilleys and the spacer from the Ford dealership. Spacer costs $20 at Ford. Great instructions and great pictures....THANKS!!!
