    Well, is the turn signal switch still in there? If it is, and the old lever just broke off, just screw out the remaining piece and screw in the new lever.

    Otherwise, take off your steering wheel (use a steering wheel puller) and you should be able to take out the turn signal switch and cancelling cam.

    x2. its simple. if you do go to the effort of removing the steering wheel, dont forget to disconnect the batterey. (which you should do any time you work on the car) I forgot once, and it was late at night, and the horn wire touched metal! scarred the shit out of me!

    If I ask to borrow your torch, the correct answer is no.

    looks like pro's got it covered.

    usually when i do these i remove it and install it in one sitting, if not I KNOW ill forget how everything went.

    rent a steering wheel puller from autozone and pop the steering wheel off, this is the only method id recomend taking a stering wheel off. ive seen some geniouses get popped in the mouth with the center peice..

    make sure its not the arm just broken off.....this reminds me, i remember seeing a kid once at a car show in his (i guess) dads 64 and swinging away at the lever till it just dangled there...i just walked away in agony.

    im looking at it and it looks like someone hit it, and broke off the plastic piece holding it in.. looks like im going to have to buy a new switch.. hopefully i can find a good one for cheap. thanks slo
