Quick questions. Doing camshaft synchronizer replacement.
My mercury 2002 Sable vulcan must be a little different because my wire harness that sits just above the camshaft sensor is surrounded by hard plastic that does not allow me to bend or move the wires. I actually just completely shattered and broke this shell off in order to get access.
1. I removed the cam shaft sensor and now have full access to the synchronizer. Is there another bolt that must be loosened or will the synchronizer just pop out? Should I use some pliers to yank it out?
2. Now that my wires will be exposed to heat since I broke this plastic shell off. What sort of tape can I get as a replacement to protect all these wires from the heat?
Thanks, this would have been an easy job had my car not had those bloody wire protectors above. I had to remove the throttle the air flow, the whole shabang because of this crap. Where I could have just move the wires out of the way and plopped her back in...sigh who designs things like this?
Thanks so much!
