Lower Steering Shaft Replacement - 2003 Lincoln Town Car and Other Panther Cars

3 Просмотры
For this video, we will show how to replace the lower steering shaft, which often causes binding in the steering, on this 2003 Lincoln Town Car. The steps are very similar on other 2003 and up Panther chassis cars such as the Ford Crown Victoria, and Mercury Grand Marquis. The 2003/2004 Marauder also uses this part - the steps should be the same, however with the DOHC motor, access may be varied slightly.

Also when done we found the intermediate steering shaft was contributing slightly to the binding, and will be replacing that in an upcoming video. Since you may wish to do both, we've including a link to that part below, however this video does not show any of the steps in removing.

Also, we do not have part numbers for the pinch bolt replacements - you will need to ask your dealer.

Finally, remember to utilize your service manual for the full steps to do this, or seek via an online resource such as
