2002 Ford Mustang Question: Camshaft Synchronizer

How to replace a Camshaft Synchronizer on a 2002 ford mustang? -
Answer 1
Often the whole wheel is broken ( along with the Cam Shaft Sensor ) and you need a new Sync assembly. There is a special tool for the alignment of the sensor. I recommend you get a repair manual if your going to work on your own vehicle. It's real easy now that they're available online. To be better prepared when working on your vehicle, read up on the job you're about to perform, it will show you component locations, bolt torque settings and what special tools you'll need. There are also technician tips related to your specific vehicle. Try http://bit.ly/mitchell_repair_manuals_online and you can have one in minutes, for less than $30.00. -
