get a hypodermic needle full of super glue ... find the noise box and glue
together the vibrating sound system that makes the noise ... once the glue
sets with the system off and you got it in there with your blind shot like
giving a needle cancer biopsey ... then the vibrating part will cease to
operate hence no noise ... maybe take you an hour to work it up and test it
to see if you got lucky in destroying it a little. the later fix of course
is do plan one below AND now plan two ... fix the rest of the system you
temporarily destroyed for time constraints. This would be the Obamabush
thing to do in getting it done.
plan one is go Old School .. take it to a gargage and have the brainaics you
trust take the steering assembly apart ... tighten up the nuts that vibrated
apart from wear and rekey the ignition ... solid fix and only some of your
time is used ... you have a safe drive with a solid steering assembly that
is less inclined to fall apart on your trip and really have to pay the
penny wise and dollar connundrum here it seems ...
plan three take the trip with the screamer and leave it as it is ...
get ear plugs, wear a helmet, duck like the Donald, run for your lives ....
sumbuddie hopes that helps
Super Glue. I love it. Good news. A buddy, who just happens to be the
ultimate jury-rigging expert I know, and also happens to be a Ford man (is
that fitting, or what?), stopped by. I'm good to go. Not to tempt fate any
further, I'll replace the ignition when we get there. Thanks again.
