Dont remove the steering wheel as likely to interfere with the air bag, the turn signal switch may be connected to the wiper switch so have a good look around the two for any connection

SOURCE: How to change the whole headlight assembly on a 05 Honda CRV

When you raise the hood, look for a Phillips screw that holds the parking lamp in. if it is there remove screw and pull parking lamp toward front of vehicle. If headlamp and side lamp are 1 piece, there should be 2 number 10 mm headed bolts that are vertical, that hold the assembly in. The side lamp will have a stud that holds the light to the fender. You may have to pry it loose. Reverse procedure to install.

Yes, there is a "spear point" plastic clip that is still engaged into a socket type holder in the front outboard portion of the tail lamp assembly. Pry gently with a tape wrapped screwdriver at the front outboard corner of the assembly and the clip will release. You will then be able to see how the clip works and will be able to align and engage it first when replacing the tail lamp assembly.

SOURCE: replace airbag on `92 honda accord

When an SRS cable reel assembly is removed and set aside during vehicle repairs, the cable reel may rotate inside the assembly so it is no longer centered. If the assembly is reinstalled with the reel off-center, the cable can break when the steering wheel is turned to full lock. The cable reel holding fixture locks the reel while the assembly is off the vehicle, keeping it centered for reinstallation.
CABLE REEL REMOVAL PROCEDURE
1. Follow the procedure in the appropriate service manual for disconnecting the battery, and removing the dashboard panels, steering column covers, airbag, and steering wheel.
^ Always install short connectors on the connectors for the driver's and passenger's (if so equipped) airbags.
^ Make sure the front wheels are pointed straight ahead before removing the steering wheel.
2. Verify that the cable reel is centered; the yellow gear tooth is lined up with the alignment mark on the cover. Install the cable reel holding fixture in the cable reel assembly as shown. Use a TORX T-10 wrench.
3. Disconnect the 6-P connector, then remove the cable reel assembly.
CABLE REEL INSTALLATION PROCEDURE
1. Verify that the front wheels are still pointed straight ahead.
2. Reinstall the cable reel assembly, and reconnect the 6-P connector.
3. Remove the cable reel holding fixture.
4. Follow the service manual procedure for reinstallation of the steering wheel, airbag, steering column covers, and dashboard covers.
5. Verify SRS operation as described in the service manual. Road test the vehicle.
^ If the steering wheel spoke angle is not correct, change it by adjusting the tie rod ends. Do not remove and reposition the steering wheel.

SOURCE: 1999 Honda Civic "DRIVER" Side Headlight Bulb Replacement..

Okay, 1999 Honda Civic, Headlight (Driver Side). If you haven't fixed this or just wanna know, this is what you have to do. The power steering pump is in the way of you getting to the bulb. You will need to remove the back tube of the power steering reservoir, the one closest to the cabin of the car. Plug this tube with a rag, quickly as fluid starts flowing immediately. Pull the res up and out of the holder it sits in. Now on to the light. Grab a hold of the black plastic clip (with wires) on the sides, and pull the electronic clip out of the light. Gently pull the rubber tabs for the weather guards, and you should now see your old bulb. There is a metal clip that holds the bulb in place, gently release this metal clip, being careful to keep it in place. Makes the job easier when you put it together. Your old bulb can now be easily pulled out. I take the bulb at this point and plug it into the clip and test the lights. This assures me that the bulb is busted and a bigger job isn't ahead of me. Once confirmed, I place the new bulb in the headlight bezel, careful to not touch glass. Clip the metal hold down clip back in place. Put the Rubber grommet back in place, clip on the electrical wire clip. Test the headlight. Put power steering tubes back in place, place the res back on the holder, and done. The book and this site: http://www.andrewdothay.net/blog/2007/11/24/1998HondaCivicHeadlightReplacement.aspx helped me a lot!

How to change the ignition lock cylinder on a 1985 s15 gmc jimmy


1st you will need two tools, you can get them from any auto parts store like NAPA. See picture at end of the GM steering lock ring depresser, a must have..
INSTRUCTIONS:
Remove steering wheel. Underneath is the turn signal switch. There is a ring around the steering shaft holding the steering wheel lock plate down. Push down on the lock plate and remove the ring and the lock plate. Next is the turn signal switch. 3 screws holding it down one on the right side above the key and 2 on the left. Probably have to move the turn signal switch left and right to get them. the arm is held on with one screw. Remove the hazard button, one screw in the end of it. There should be enough slack in the turn signal wires to get it over the steering shaft. On the top side at the bottom of the ignition switch there should be a screw. Remove screw and the ignition switch will just pull out. Reverse to install.

How do you replace a turn signal lever on a 1990 chevy suburban 1/2 ton 4x4?


You will have to remove the steering wheel and then remove the ignition cylinder ( insert the key and turn it counterclockwise, then remove the retaining screw and pull it out). Then remove the steering wheel lock plate ( works best if you have the compressing tool, the spring behind the plate is pretty strong) then remove the under dash panel and unhook the turn signal harness. Then tie a piece of string or a piece of wire to the connector. pull the turn signal level straight out of the switch (towards the door) be careful if you have cruise control (there is a small wire connected to it) and just let it hang. then remove the mounting screws and the screw that hold the hazard button on. Pull the switch out and guide the wires up through the steering column. The wire or string will come up with the harness. Now tie the end of the string to the connector of the new switch and pull the string carefully and guide the harness back down and reverse the removal steps

How to change ignition barrel


You have to remove the Airbag, so take the negative lead off the truck battery. Remove the airbag. remove the steering wheel. You will need a steering wheel puller or some good luck in getting it off without one. Under the steering wheel you will have a retaining plate. It has a spring clip around the center shaft that has to be removed. not real easy. it has a big spring behind the plate you'll have to contend with. Once you get the clip off, remove the plate.You'll have to remove the screws holding the turn signal stalk in place. Remove the screw holding the ignition cylinder in place. The whole thing should slide out now.

Turn signal switch


'm not sure but I'll put in my 2 cents worth.

I changed a turn signal switch on an older model and it wasn't too difficult. First you have to remove the horn button or top center piece of the steering wheel. There should be screws from the bottom side that you remove to do this. Once you get that off there is simply a large nut in the center than needs to be removed that holds the steering wheel on. [I did not need any sort of steering wheel puller.] Once the steering wheel is off you'll see how the turn signal switch is attached. its simply a matter of disconnecting the wires and removing screws and then putting everything back together. Make sure you get the steering wheel properly positioned. Before you start simply make sure the wheel is positioned in the straight ahead position.
