To adjust your headlights you need to turn the stud that sticks through the support of the retainer connecting your headlights to the header panel. Use a 4mm socket or wrench. Been a while since I had mine, but I seem to recall it being a rather tight area to work with.

Each headlight has 2 studs you can adjust if I remember right, Left/Right and Up/Down. The stud closer to the inner parking lights or inner high-beams adjusts your Up/Down motion. The studs closer to the outer corner signal lights adjust the left/right.

Your coil went out. First, check elec. connection to the coil. If they are okay, try replacing the Coil. They don't cost too much.

Hi Elikapeka . which engine is in your Thunderbird? Also Why do you want to know? is it not running?
the V6 3.8 litre firing order is:
V-6 Firing Order: 1-4-2-5-3-6
if you are having running problems and you have the big carburetor rather than injection. a good tuner guy is your expert and these guys do it by ear if they know what they are doing.

run fault codes and look for a TCM problem in the transmission

No . it is not normal to have to this as the Cross is bolted to the pinion flange with 2 small bolts for each side. The drive shaft will slide out of the rear of the gear box normally or if there is a flange there unbolt the 2 halves of the flange and remove it . Some diff pinions have the same arrangement depending on the make and capacity of the diff and torque requirements

Generally speaking, yes.
You could drill out the lock cylinder, or remove the switch on the bottom of the steering column.
The steering wheel and shifter would still be locked.

These cars have a factory amp system that will not operate correctly with an aftermarket stereo. You have two choices. You can either run new wires to the speakers your self which would bypass the factory amp. Or you can order the premium sound system Interface here http://www.myinstallkit.com/FORD/1990%20(90)%20FORD%20THUNDERBIRD%20Radio%20-%20Stereo%20Installation%20Kit.htm scroll about half way down the page.

What have you tested so far ?

Try a new antenna temporarily--just hold the mast base in your hand. Water can enter the antenna cable from outside which shorts it out. Hope this helps!

If the fan wont blow air at all then it is a fuse. If the fan works and the car is warm you have a clog somewhere. you could try pulling a heater hose off when the car is cold to check for flow.
