Entry Step

05 Monaco Windsor -- The entry step extends and retracts as it should however when it retracts it lacks about 3/8" to 1/2" of making full contact with the sensor that turns off the dash warning "step out" light. I can manually lift the step the remaining distance and the light will go out. It seems to be a matter of play that has developed over time.

The question is, is there a way of adjusting so the play can be eliminated?

Yes there might be a way. See if the gears are worn before it fully retracts. If so you can drop the gear and motor and reset it to the gears less worn. Sanford

The motor has 3 plastic balls in the gear train that will deform if someone steps on it while it is extending. If one of the plastic balls is deformed the step will hang down as you describe. Take the round cover off of the motor assembly to see the balls. Others in this forum have said the motor assembly is an electric window motor, Ford, I think. Take the motor assembly to your local auto parts dealer to get a new one. Many have said NAPA stocks the part. I kept the old motor when I had to replace my entire step assembly, so I haven't bought a new motor.

Thanks, with all your help I believe I fixed the problem. By taking it all apart I found several problems. All have been remedied. Thanks again for the direction.
