Broke my turn signal switch

Can anyone tell me the easiest way to fix it? Do I need a whole new steering column? And if I can buy the parts.......where?

First ones fuzzy but there is part of the threads still inside and the plastic housing it screws into broke as well.

You can replace just that part, but it involves pulling the steering wheel and dismantling the column.

Where can I find the internal black plastic piece that the turn signal knob sits in?

If you have to buy the turn signal switch, bite the bullet and go to a dealer to get a good one. I got one from autozone and it fell apart on me fast. I had to return it and get a dealer one. It could cost around $150 but you will be happy you did.

Anyone have a diagram or pictures of taking the column apart? I need to replace my turn signal cancelling cam but I have never taken apart a steering column before... I have heard I need a steering wheel puller, but is there any way around that or should I see if the parts store tool rental has one. I don't really want to buy one as I have gone 36 years of my life without one...

You can get the wheel off without a puller, but its easier with one. There is a tool you will have to rent or buy to get the collar off to get to the turn signal cam. It uses the center shaft and pushes the outside of the ring down so you can take a snapring off. Then you can get the assembly to pull up and out of the way. Its a PITA bigtime...I would rather take an asswippin lol

I have a FSM and it kind of looked like a PITA. I will probably just keep turning that signal off manually until something else breaks in the column. :-)
I certainly have other, bigger problems at the moment with it!

does the turn signal stalk screw into place or does it fit into a notch?
