Replacing turn signal in steering column

Anybody have some quick notes on removing the steering wheel and replacing the turn signal mechanism? I have the part but can't seem to get started. Do I pry the horn off to get to the bolt?

Yep, you can just pry that rubber cover over the center off to get to the nut. I believe its a 3/4" nylon locking nut. You'll have to get a steering wheel puller or get creative after that though. Once you get the steering wheel off it shouldn't be too hard to replace the turn signal cam.

It does have tilt and it is an auto. I have a steering wheel puller and I figured I would have to remove some plastic. Where is the special tool used.

Thanks,

It's for pushing and holding down the spring plate down so you can remove the big "C" clip that holds it on the steering shaft. There is a stout spring pushing it against the "C" clip.
I usually make my own tool out of some scrap steel and a couple of bolts.

You need a pressure plate tool. I just did this last week on my jeep. You can get the snap ring out without it but you damn sure wont get it back on.

There is no situation that cannot be improved with a small but well-placed explosive.

I picked up a new turnsignal/windshield wiper control arm yesterday. Ours snapped off, I am assuming I need to follow these instructions. Any hints on how to get the broken piece out? Is tap and die the best or a small drill?
