1. You are going to need a steering wheel puller.
2. You remove the steering wheel center.
3. you remove the large steering column nut, then install steering wheel puller to remove the steering wheel. It is necessary to mark the shaft to the steering wheel so that it will go back in the same position.
Once the steering wheel is removed, you can see the turn signal switch. There is one center screw that holds the turn signal switch inside the steering wheel hub.
Once the screw is removed the signal can be lifted up over the steering wheel shaft.
Now leaving that, go underneather the dash area and remove the smallpanel around the steering wheel shaft. There you will find a large electrical connector with all the wires that are used in the steering column. This connector can either be fed up thru the column or by disconnecting all of the wires and feeding them up through the column.
this will remove the old switch. The new switch and its wiring harness must now be fed back down the steering column and then reconnected to the large electrical connector.
Now re-install the new switch, screw the turn signal stem back into the switch assembly and the re-install the steering wheel, according to the aligments marks you made, otherwise your steering wheel will be off centered. Tighten down steering wheel center nut, and other panels. Check operation of switch.
Factory manuel gives mechanics 1 hour to do this, but it cam take up to 4 hours.
