Question about 1995 Saturn Sl
I think you would be better off to remove the steering wheel than the whole column. With the steering wheel and column trim removed you can replace the switch. It requires a special puller and some expertise as I think you have an airbag in the steering wheel. You do not want to set off or disable the airbag.
I would avoid a dealer as they will charge you more than the value of the car to replace this part. Get a replacement switch cheap used on ebay or expensive new on saturnparts.net, call around to some repair shops ang get referred to a shop which does a lot of electrical work, then take your car there for the service.

TO THE BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE THERE IS NO PLUG-IN FLASHER BASE FOR REPLACEMENT. IT IS IN THE ELECTRONICS MODULE LOCATED JUST TO THE LEFT OF THE ASH TRAY PULL OUT, DOWN TOWARDS THE BOTTOM OF THE DASH. THE "FIX" IS REMOVING THE TURN SIGNAL ARM/SWITCH AND REPLACING IT OR TAKING IT APART AND CLEANING THE SWITCH WHICH IS LOCATED IN THE STEERING COLUMN.

Addendum by Happy Gilmore: Yes the above is a good solution. I have a '98 Town Car and found that the turn signals and flashers had stopped working, but running lights were still good. I ruled-out the lighting control module, by having been told it was very reliable. The turn signal arm is fairly easy to remove. The steering column shroud (cover) is held together with phillips screws underneath. But the steering tilt engagement arm will need to be unscrewed before the blinker arm can be pulled down and out. The tilt-arm is screwed in w/some wicked locktite. I had to use vice grips with a swatch of bike-tube rubber to keep from marring the metal. after that, the blinker arm can be removed with a 7mm socket, and the 2 wiring harnesses can be unplugged. After removing the arm, I cleaned the unit with a can of QD electro-contact cleaner (plastic safe) from the home center. I did this WITHOUT disassembling the actual blinker-arm unit. Instead I found numerous openings in the plasiic housing to inject the cleaner. After giving the unit a little time to dry, I plugged the 2 harnesses in back in, and everything worked like new.
