Before servicing any electrical component, the ignition key must be in the OFF or LOCK position and all electrical loads must be OFF , unless instructed otherwise in these procedures. If a tool or equipment could easily come in contact with a live exposed electrical terminal, also disconnect the negative battery cable. Failure to follow these precautions may cause personal injury and/or damage to the vehicle or its components.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the steering column trim covers.
  3. Remove the retaining screws from the multifunction switch.

    Fig. Remove the multifunction switch (2) from the steering column

  4. Remove the multifunction switch from the steering column.
  5. Disconnect the electrical connectors from the multifunction switch.

To install:
  1. Connect the electrical connectors to the multifunction switch.
  2. Install the multifunction switch to the steering column while depressing the spring loaded horn pin.
    NOTE Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.
  3. Install the retaining screws to the multifunction switch and tighten the screws to 36 lb inches (4 Nm).
  4. Install the steering column trim covers.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.
  6. Ensure that the multifunction switch functions properly.

How to change the turn signal baulb in the rear light on my 2004 chevy cav

Hi, I am not familar with the 2004 Caviler; however, I can give you some suggestions on how to get this lanp/bulb replaced. First, look in the trunk. With some cars, you can access these lamps from the inside of the trunk. If access to these rear lamps this is not possible through the trunk, then look at the actual light assembly from the outside. Some cars will allow access to therse rear lampsfrom the outside by removing a few screws and then pulling out the entire light assembly. Good Luck!

How do I replace the right front turn signal bulb on a 1999 Chevy Cavalier?

Remove the splash shield that fits across the top (under the hood). You need to carefully pry the six bolt-style plastic clips off that hold it.
The signal lamp assembly is removed by releasing a clip which is located between the headlamp assembly and signal lamp assembly. There is a slot in the top to insert a screwdriver. Push down on the clip and the signal assembly should slide right out.
