Removing Steering Wheel Part

So I bought a 91 YJ that came with a GT steering wheel. The blinker lever is broken and won't go down to engage my left blinker, so I decided to try to see what was wrong. Problem is I'm stuck. Do I use a puller to remove the grey part with the three bolt threads off? (Last picture) Thanks guys.

yes you need a puller to remove that aluminum part in your last picture.

Thanks for the quick reply. So I just use the puller to remove it and nothing else? And to put it back on just tighten it with the nut?

Yes but before you put it back on center your steering wheel or mark it before you pull it off. Those grant adapters allow you to rotate it to center up your steering wheel with your tires. Also you will need a puller and install tool for the pressure plate below it. I personally just use a pick tool and some good ole fashion muscle to remove the snap ring then a flat head and muscle to reinstall it, and below that you will find your turn signal cam assembly. Good luck man it's an easy job. Just take your time.

Sounds good. Thanks man. I got another question while I'm at it. My horn doesn't work. But when I put a probe to that wire, my probe lights up and you hear the horn for a second. I realize behind the steering wheel there are to connectors but only one wire coming from the column. Is one supposed to be the ground?

Generally you only need one wire. Horn circuits typically just complete the ground. Best thing to do there is search online for directions at the manufacturers website. That how I found out how to do my Grant set up that the PO did not complete

the wire coming out of the column goes to the center terminal

the other terminal, you use a short wire to run to one of the 3 bolts holding the adapter on, it completes the ground circuit

That grey part is the adapter for the aftermarket wheel. I suppose you may need a puller, mine just slides right off.

You could probably also use this for once you're in there........ http://www.epiccomputer.com/dale/jee...tilt/tilt.html
