Here is an amazing photo manual of the steering column tear-down to fix actuator on an 85 Bronco. It looks like a big job, though, which is unfortunate because the actuator on my 89 just snapped last week.

You may look or feel the back side of the steering wheel, looking for 2 screws that hold the airbag to the wheel, these will be internal torq type screws (star) you may have to rotate the steering wheel 90 degrees to access the screws. You should first disable the airbag, by removing the airbag fuse, and or by disconnecting a yellow connector located near the base of the steering column. under the knee bolster.(panel below column). Once the retaining screws are removed, lift bag and disconnect the 2 connector to the airbag, the ground for the horn, and the horn contact wire, which requires you to push down and twist counter clockwise, damage to the horn contact ring will occur if you try and just pull connector from the ring. Now you can remove the steering wheel, may require a puller, and the you will have access to the turn signal switch.

You have to remove the airbag in the steering wheel. Unplug the battery. Place the steering wheel in the outer most lower position. Turn the wheel and in a certain position in the back using a mirrior you'll see holes. With a small screw driver you can unclip the airbag. Turn the wheel the other way to access the other clip. There are 2. Once removed unclip; the harness connector (yellow from the airbag and place it so the vw symbol of the airbag is facing upwards so if it does go off it won't fly upwards. **You should use an antistatic ground on yourself not to deploy the airbag. then use a 12mm triple square drive socket to remove the steering wheel. note the position as it can be placed in several positions. Behind the wheel is the steering angle sensor/ clockspring. DO NOT TURN the clockspring and make sure it stays in it's position when reinstalled or it will break. From there you can remove the trim on the column and access the switches. When reinstalling the airbag VW states to reinstall everything final, close all windows, put the key ON position get out of the car close the door, and only then put the battery back. This is because if the airbag does go off for any reason you will not be in the car when you put the key on. If it does go off the key will already be on and you will be safe. This is the procedure from VW and they state that if damge to other components are affected by key on and battery connected it is still safer than getting an airbag in your face. Just precautionnary. Note the airbag clips are hard to access to remove it. You have to place the flat end of the screw driver on the upper part of the clip and kin of press it downwards. Let me know, but if you are not comfortable or not experienced in airbags do not attempt this yourself.!!!
