    Used / Wrecking Yard Item - 2-5 Business Days (May delay order)

    Used vacuum release valve for the tilt / tilt away steering column found in the Mercury Cougar or Ford Mustang. This vacuum solenoid releases the steering column for the swing away function. These vacuum tilt solenoids are tested and guaranteed to work.

    Bench testing the 1967-69 tilt away release solenoid: Verify that there is continuity between the two electrical spade connectors. No continuity means the the windings in solenoid windings are bad. This is a bad solenoid. Next, put vacuum to the lower port (10-17 inches of vacuum) any handheld or car vacuum source will work. The solenoid housing goes to ground, and the spade connector goes to 12v, when power is applied, (you will hear a clicking sound) the vacuum should drop out on a functioning solenoid.

    There is an active thread on the Classic Cougar Community Forum discussing tilt columns and trouble shooting.

    Ford part # C7ZZ-3D536-A.


    *NOTE* WCCC services all FoMoCo tilt and tilt-tilt away steering columns 1967-1979. Our shop rate for this service is $90 per hour and most columns with serious problems do need complete tear down and build up which usually takes 3-4 hours plus the cost of any replacement parts needed. To offset the cost of your rebuild, you can send us additional parts or parts columns and we will give you an in store credit. Turn around time is usually one week but rush orders can be accomplished. For more details call us at 503-463-1130 and ask for Don W.

    I sent in my '67 one, with one wire connector, and got one back that looked similar (T-Bird maybe?) but has two wires so will not hook up to my electrical so will return it. They need to check it is correct before sending.
