Default loose cruise control switch

2000 XTL 4.0 cruise switch on steering wheel still works but moves around. I use it very gently, now for the question. when i take off the air bag pad on steering wheel, besides air bag going off. should i look out for small parts falling out. that type of thing. Will the switchs be right there to look at. usally go to junk yard and look at wrecks. wether to bad. thanks take care nort guy

you will be fine. just unscrew the air bag on the side of the steering colum and lift the airbag off. it will be connected by a plug, you don't need to unhook it,you can but it's not needed. and then you'll be looking at 4 screws. 2 on each toggle. Nothing is going to fall out. you'll be fine.

at junk yard look at steering wheel , it seem that the cruise switchs have what I call ribon wires (like something you see inside a computer
couldnt tell where to disconnet or how to disconnet,(spell check whats that).would love to talk with desiger who tought two little tabs would not break on a switch this size. any way where dose this unplug. cant just buy switch from junk yard, Have to buy whole wheel. " hell son nobody wants a wheel with parts missing" take care thanks
