Question about 1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Coupe
Changing the turn signal switch is a fairly involved process. You'll need to disable and remove the driver's side airbag, the steering wheel, and the SIR coil in the steering column. You'll need a steering wheel puller and a lock plate compressor, in addition to the normal assortment of sockets, screwdrivers and Torx drivers. Autozone has detailed instructions for disabling the airbag, removing the steering wheel, and replacing the switch on their web site. I printed their directions and several of the diagrams and was able to replace the switch without any major problems.
Be prepared to spend some time on this--even the simplest steps can take more time that you expect. Case in point: Step 1--disconnect the negative battery terminal. To do this on my 96 Cutlass required removing a cross member under the hood and the windshield washer reservoir.
