Repairing Tow Haul Switch

Repairing Tow Haul Switch

Postby Ilesy [OP] » Apr 09 2012, 4:02pm

I am trying to repair the tow haul switch on my 2001 silverado 1500. I am told I need to remove the tilt lever, and the T-25 torx screws to drop the steering arm lower panel. Can anyone help me on how to remove these items, as I don't seem to be able to remove either.
Thanks

I think the tilt lever just pulls off (towards the drivers door). After you get the torx screws out of the lower cover, it should unsnap from the top part and you will have to move it around a bit to get it to clear the obsticles and come off. You should be able to access everything you need to when it comes off.

Thanks Jordan
I have the tilt lever off, but I cannot get the screws out. Is there a special tool required for this. I have tried several different sizes of torx heads.

to be honest, I'm not sure. I was thinking they were torx head screws. I know they are up on the holes deep (meaning you can't see them), but it may suprise you and just be phillips head screws.

just did the job the other day after being instructed from this website. there is two screws torx at least in my 2000 silverado they come out then the plastic housing around the keyholepops apart from the front (closer to the steering wheel and the back kind of pivots down there is an orange shielding over two ultra thin white wires one or both is broken resolder them but be careful because the wires are connected to the shifter so they can not bind or theyll rip off when you shif tinto drive
