Anyone know what the one weird bolt is to drop the column is down? 3 nuts & what? torks size or what?
Yea, I see that also. How about the covers underneath the focus,fusion & 150? You'd think they'd be all the same size like a 10mm huh, wrong, try 8mm ,10mm & 12mm. All the LX bodied cars are 10's.Yeah I've noticed the randomness on the interior stuff already
"ok guys we'll put some 8mm bolts here,7mm here, t15 there, t20 there, phillips here. Hey do we anything in SAE? No? ok put a 1/4" here."
That'd work, Roger but its a internal torks= meaning like inside the bolt. The bolt is rounded on the outside. I suppose I can try & grab it w/ vise grips on the edge. This torx is not the regular style its rounded, not sharp edges as a tork has.There ARE special sockets for torx head bolts (they're getting more common) but a normal socket will usually fit. Works OK as long as it doesn't require a LOT of torque.
You have to remove the top & bottom covers of the column & it at the passenger side towards the wheel= top right. The other 3 are on studs w/ nuts to hold the coumn. I'll do it when I have more time. It was a hassel putting the top & bottom halfs of the column back together.For an internal type an Allen key in the right size will often work.
Can you see where this special bolt is without taking it apart? You've got me curious now.
