95 Turn Signal removal help
 
I know there is a thread that gets pointed to a lot for this issue

http://www.epiccomputer.com/dale/jee...tilt/tilt.html Thread.

But that site doesn't match up to my 95 YJ when it comes to actually replacing the turn signal lever. Does anyone have a write up on removing an actual 95 YJ turn signal. The problem I have is that my turn signal broke off inside the switch, so I need to take the switch out to remove the broken part. I have the steering wheel off and the lock plate removed, but now I can't get the housing that holds the turn signal lever in place out of the steering column. What am I supposed to do after I remove the lock plate?

you don't have to take it all apart to get that out.. use a drill to make a hole in it... big enough to use a long sheet metal or dry wall screw... then pull the stub out.. Install new turn signal lever....

I have tried that. It didn't work. So I need to remove the entire piece from the inside.

Any other thoughts? Like I said the link that everyone points to does not match my 95 YJ. The turn signal lever is broken off inside the turn signal switch. I have removed the lock plate and I unscrewed the next part after the lock plate, but I can't get the actual turn signal part out. It is loose, but it won't pull out of the steering column, it almost feels like the Ignition lock (The part where the key goes) is keeping that piece from coming out, but I can't see anyway to remove the ignition lock from the column or the actual turn signal switch.

I did not have to remove the key cylinder to replace the switch. I believe the wire harness is pretty tight, you will need to take that loose under the dash. Go ahead and take out the bolts holding the column to the dash, you will need the extra room to remove harness.

Thanks Que, I searched that but everyone is always so vague about this part of the process. Below is a picture of where I am, I'm using the metal rod to point at the turn signal switch and the location where the lever broke off. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get that switch out. From the top the large black plastic piece is held on by three screws which I have removed. There doesn't appear to be anything else holding it in. The piece is loose, it just won't come out, and I am afraid that if I force it out I will break it. is there anyone out there who has removed this piece and can tell me how to do it?

Nope, but I didn't have time to look at it yesterday. There has to be something obvious that I am missing.

was it hanging up on the broken piece, or was it something else that was preventing it from coming out the other day?

It was the ignition lock. It did have to be removed and it was the spring removal type. The problem was that the spot to press down was really hard to see and I had a tough time getting it pressed in enough to remove the lock.

Like I said the 95 column isn't 100% like the one in Dale's write up, just look at the left side of my column to see the difference. But it's close enough that once I examined his write up I figured out where I should be pushing on the ignition lock.

Glad to hear it.
