high beam switch

Shadyman,

I read your comment on corsicas.com about adjusting the high beam switch on the steering column when the high beams wont work. This is exactly my problem. I removed the panel and found the switch. Unfortunately, when looking at the switch, I don't know how to adjust it. Are the screws below the switch on the steering column? Do I have to unscrew the steering column to get to them?

Thanks

Switch tweaking

You should be abe to just twist the switch upward. As I recall, the screw is above and behind the switch. It might help to drop the steering column; it's not hard. You remove the knee-pad (access cover) with 4 screws, then loosen or remove the 4 bolts that hold in the black collar around the steering column. It should give you a better angle to get to it.

Let me know how it goes :)

Update on switch

The switch doesn't budge and is quite tight. I will drop the steering column when I get a chance to get a better shot at the nut. I am wondering, since everything is tight, that it could be something else. Perhaps something is restricting the travel of the rod.

If the high beams switch on

If the high beams switch on when you reach under the steering column and push the switch manually, the switch itself is good.

The only time I know of when the rod won't travel all the way is when the turn signal stalk is behind the padded portions of the steering wheel (Located at 4:00 and 8:00 when straight).

Adjusting the switch should put it within reach of the high beam lever and rod.

As you said, it might involve further inspection.
