      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one.

The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. First of all thanks for the help to date, I can get the Air bag out OK. There is no rattle or anything loose in the assembly when I shake it. My Airbag is for 2003 fusion and has 2 wiring plugs at the back,one green and the other Black. A good friend has given me a Fusion replacement airbag to try out if I wish, but its only got a single back plug at the back.2005 ??? Would it be a problem if I tried it out should the tapping still persist. Thanks again. John.
  2. Thanks Guys, I had thought of making up a form of stethoscope to listen while driving. It does not happen on smooth roads and is not a metallic tap, more like shaking an item in a plastic container,there is nothing at the upper end of the steering column area that's loose. It just Bl--dy tantalizing.and I will not give up a until I find out was what it is. John.
  3. Many thanks for the advice. I followed thye instructions given to the letter and also the Haynes manual method using a small screw driver.. Neither way would the springs move to release/airbag unit. I can see the curled top of the spring ? using a mirror and its really tantilising as Iam becoming an expert at removing the surrounding panels for easy access. :). Perhaps I pushing in the wrong direct but I have tried variants. Sorry to be a pain but I would like to solve this problem. ATB, John.
  4. I have an annoying tapping/knock from the steering wheel airbag container. It only happens on rough road surfaces. I have removed the surrounding panels without a problem. I need advice on how to remove the centre assembly from the steering wheel to locate the offending part thats tapping. Thanks,John.Bristol.UK.
