Hazard Button

Hi everyone,

My 74 GTV 2000 hazard button is not working properly. I need to slip a small piece of paper so it stays in the off position. In order to replace the button do I need to remove the dash. I purchased a new hazard button from International. If I do need to remove dash is this a complicated job, has this been talked about before? Where can I get info and diagrams on how to remove dash?

Thanks for any help.

Tony

No need to remove the dash. Just remove the two screws that hold the gauge cluster in , gently pull the cluster toward you and you'll have enough room to reach in to replace the hazard switch.

The switch is relatively easy to disassemble. Mine was doing the same thing and I was able to fix it. Take a picture of the wires attached to the back, though. If you don't, you'll be miffed when you go to put it back in.

John,
Could you expand on what you found and how you fixed it?
Thanks,
Ed

It's been a couple of years ago, and I didn't have a digital camera then. As I recall, the mechanism was a little gunked up from years of crud going into the switch. When you push the button, I think there was a little disk underneath that had the switch contacts. This disk rotated slightly and closed the circuit. That's all I can recall. but it wasn't hard to fix, as I remember. Just be very careful when disassembling so you know exactly how the parts go together.
