Steering Column Lower Cover Photos

Ignition switch replacement has been a standard topic for years. Replacement of the switch requires removal and reinstallation of the plastic lower steering column cover, which is not difficult but requires some finesse to avoid breaking any of the many alignment tabs and clips that secure it in place. For reference, I colored in silver these alignment/attachment points as shown in the attached photos so you can see where they are.

You must be thinkin' (all is normal with this forum) and viewing your pics is a no brainer.

Maybe some viewing on a tablet or smart phone can just use their fingers and expand the pic t really see it. Others of us are using a PC at home and still getting (rejected) when trying to view any pics for the last two/three weeks now.

My current workaround to the issue with ability to view site photos is, using my PC, to right-click on a photo, select "Save Picture As" and download it to a folder. From there I can open the photo.

Took less time go to the Moon and back than it is to fix the picture problem. Makes you want to go HMMMM. Unless the Russians are behind it. What you think?

We'll have a lot of good stuff to go back and look at whenever they get this site picture thing fixed.

When I right click on yours it doesn't give the save image option as it normally does.
"Save image as" and "copy image" are faded.

Often wrong...... but never in doubt.

I tried Snomunchers' Save as image, Save, go to downloads and download document and then increase the magnification. It will work though, at least it does on my PC. Think I'll wait with everyone else for the fix.

Since Viewing attached photos is still being a problem that is being worked on, just right click on the photos in the post and then resize them so you can see them. Seems too work for Me, just a tip.

Do we know if anyone is actually trying to fix this problem? We've all complained about it in this thread and others, but I haven't seen anyone acknowledge the problem and state that they're working on a fix.

Sorry I am not an IT person but the owners Admin's on our site are supposedly looking into this glitch. BTW: Our site owner's Admins work on many other car websites not just ours.

Yes indeed, this has been going on for sometime now and we ALL are anxiously awaiting the fix.

The owners, VerticalScope Inc. 111 Peter Street, Suite 700 Toronto, Ontario, Canada, M5V 2H1, has moved us to the bottom of the list, probably in retaliation for steel and Aluminum tariffs.

Maybe they'll give us a break as they are gonna make out big time on lobster exports to China.

China has also retaliated against the US with a 25% bump up on tariffs on lobsters coming from the US while at the same time.......decreasing their tariff on lobsters from Canada.

The kanooks win this one and Maine loses.

I am sure these comments were in jest but this is not the place for politics.

Post #41-- BlueStreak--I cannot tell you much, but something is better than nothing I hope. Marc NY has been chasing the Owner Admins on this since it started. He is trying to get them to understand that apparently we do not see what they see. I do not try to make excuses but I also understand that sometimes if you are not looking through the same window the image is different. The problem is being worked on and when we get some answers we will let you know. We understand how frustrating this is to you. It is frustrating us as well, and we are doing what we can, which is not much right now. Please try to understand.

Thanks Nick,
I and the other Moderators do not read every post either, and therefore, I can only speak for what I know and I try to pass on the information I think is appropriate at the time. If I can answer a question i do so and if not I try to find the information necessary and go back and answer the question when I can. I am lucky enough to have a lot of time to spend here and I enjoy it but I do have a life, as do the other moderators and Administrators, and we are all volunteers. I cannot speak for those who work on behalf of Vectorscope, but we have channels to send questions to them and when they respond we try to get back to our members if the message is still timely.
