there are some special tools required you will need to get to the turn-signal

Many vehicles use a turn signal switch that is separate from the multifunction switch. The steering wheel will have to be removed to gain access to the turn signal switch on these vehicles. The following procedure is a common method of turn signal switch replacement:
- Place the fender covers on the fenders.
- Disconnect the negative battery cable.
- Remove the steering column trim.
- Remove the horn pad from the steering wheel.

- Use a suitable puller to remove the steering wheel.
- With a suitable compressor, compress the preload spring to the lock plate. Compress the spring only enough to remove the snap ring.
