How do I get the cover behind the steering wheel to pop open on a 1994 Chev z24 Cavalier so I can change the wiper switch?

There is a special tool that screws onto the steering wheel threads and compresses the lock plate to release the snap ring so the lock plate will come off. It's a strong spring, so you'll have to rent the tool if you can't borrow one.

Yes , the steering needs to be pull .
Disable the SIR system. Refer to SIR Disabling and Enabling in SIR. Remove the steering wheel. Refer to Steering Wheel Replacement . Remove the upper and lower trim covers. Refer to Steering Column Trim Covers Replacement .
Important: The abrasion sleeve located on the steering column wire harness assembly must be reinstalled. Make note of what connector is coming out of the abrasion sleeve for installation purposes.
Remove the wire harness assembly (1) from the wire harness strap (2). Disconnect the turn signal and multifunction switch assembly connector from the SIR system coil connector.

I need to replace the multi-function wiper switch on a 2003 Chev express van, what type of screw driver is needed to remove the steering column housing that contains the switch?

the switch is underneath the steering wheel. the steering wheel needs to be pulled to replace the switch. the airbag is in the steering wheel, and a trained tech with a puller is needed to pull that wheel off without screwing up the airbag.

My turn signals stopped working in my 1992 chevy cavalier...what should i do? i dont have alot of money...

you have not told us whether your hazrd lights are working.......if they are, then you will have to replace your turn signal switch, which will require removal of the steering wheel, and cover surround.......if your hazrd lights are not working, you will have to replace your blinker relay, because the hazard lights use this relay also, it is a good indicator of a relay failure.....

1992 cavalier ignition switch and key assembly

The following procedure is "generic" for replacing the lock cylinder. There are a couple of specialized tools you will need and saftey precautions concerning the air bag system.
Take a look and let me know if you wish to tackle the job.
To remove the ignition lock:
CAUTION You must remove the steering wheel when replacing the ignition lock. On vehicles with a Supplemental Inflatable Restraint (SIR) system, you must temporarily disable the SIR system and remove the inflator module when removing the steering wheel. Leaving the SIR system on could result in deployment of the air bag and possible personal injury.

  • Disconnect the negative battery cable, and remove the steering wheel.
  • Remove the bumper and the carrier snapring retainer from the steering shaft.
  • Use a lock plate compressor screw tool to install the lock plate compressor screw in the upper steering shaft. To keep the shaft from telescoping, tighten it to 40 inch lbs.
  • Using the lock plate compressor tool, install on the upper steering shaft, tighten it to depress the shaft lock. Remove the shaft lock retainer, the compressor tool and the steering shaft lock.
  • Remove the turn signal canceling cam assembly. Put the turn signal switch in the "N" position and remove the upper bearing spring.
  • Position the turn signal switch so the mounting screws can be removed through the holes in the switch and remove the turn signal lever.
  • Remove the turn signal switch-to-steering column screws and lift the turn signal switch. Remove the wire protector and disconnect the turn signal switch connector.
  • Use a terminal remover tool to disconnect the buzzer switch wires from the turn signal switch connector. Remove the buzzer switch assembly with needle-nose pliers.
  • Place the lock cylinder in the ACC position, then remove the lock retaining screw and the lock cylinder set.
  • To install the new cylinder lock, reverse the removal procedures.
  • Tighten the lock retaining screw to 22 inch lbs., the turn signal switch screws to 59 inch lbs. and turn the turn signal lever screw to 53 inch lbs.
  • As part of the final replacement procedures, check the operation of the switches and the steering column.
