That sort of makes it seem that you drove all the way with your blinker on.Nice try on the springs Pete165, oh well!
As for what is wrong, I think the ridges on the receptor piece are too well defined. The edges should be more gradual and not stepped like they are. BTW, the entire assembly is only ~$70, so worst case scenario, if you screw it up, it's a pretty minimal investment to get another one. But when you get it right, it'll put a smile on your face when you use the blinker. Smiled the whole way to work this morning, haha
Guaranteed the 2011 won't be like yours.So I took mine in today along with a few other things, and I just got off the phone with them and the shop supervisor says "there's no problem with it" which doesn't surprise me.
So when I get back over there I'll get them to grab some keys and we'll start comparing it to some others on the lot. I saw a 2011 Limited there earlier so I'll check that one for sure, and I'll get them to check a few others. Hopefully we can find a few that aren't like mine.
I asked them to check it with me before I left, and when I came back and they said it was fine I had them check other vehicles to compare. Didn't take them long to replace it after checking another... Now maybe I was just lucky, but I wouldn't take "works fine" as an answer - escalate it through Ford if you have to.dealer said mine is fine........It is horrible. Like others have said, up is fine, down feels like its going to snap. I agree on at times I just dont use it.
Welcome to the Forum dddurham1975.:wavey:Hello Everyone,
I've been a lurker on this forum for quite some time and decided to join today. I have a 2013 Ford Explorer Limited 4WD loaded with every available option (including read twin DVD's). Mine was an early 2013 model and has about 28,000 miles now. I too had the issue with the turn signal and FORD actually replaced the entire stalk yesterday. The new unit is completely smooth... actually smoother than I can ever remember to be honest?
Anyhow, I took info from this forum to the dealer and of course they dismissed most of it. But after having the Service Manager come out and test my lever, he completely agreed that something was wrong and ordered an immediate replacement. No complaints at all about the new lever!
I joined the forum today because I need some honest assistance and feedback. I am hoping to start a new thread for this discussion. But in a nut shell, I have accumulated a lot of miles and debating on getting a 2014 that I can pamper a little bit more... a "do-over" so to speak. My challenge... the 2014 competition... and my 28K service track record that I have to question.
Thanks everyone... maybe my post will help others get that issue fixed with the turn signal lever.
