2002 Taurus wagon with Duratec engine. Suspect MFS is bad. Low beam work fine. When pushing stalk forward stays on low beams but switch mechanically goes to high beam position. Pulling stalk toward you (flash to pass) works normally. High beams go on and indicator on dash comes on.
Somewhere else on the forum was a post saying that the switch just pops out of the dash. Can I get to the MFS without disassembling the steering column?
What is the procredure to get to and replace the high beam switch?

I believe you can access the MFS by splitting the steering column cover. Usually easier to pull the steering wheel, but, it can be done without.

Take a look at this to get at your MFS...If you pulled your steering wheel you would still have to do this in order to check it so save a little time and the fear of the airbag going off; so try this first .... also if the steering wheel raise and lower leaver gets in the way, it is threaded so just unscrew it ....don't forget first step....disconnect battery
