The flasher has 2 prongs and just plugs into a receptacle.No other parts need to be removed; however, the flasher is usually along the steering column under the dash.If one side still works, turn it on and follow the clicking noise. I hope this helps you. Mark
A drag link converts rotary motion from a crank to a second crank or link in a different plane or axis.The term is commonly used in automotive technology for the link in a four bar steering linkage that converts rotation of a steering arm to a center link and eventually to tie rod links which pivot the wheels to be steered. A drag link is used when the steering arm operates in a plane above the other links. The drag link converts the sweeping arc of the steering arm to linear motion in the plane of the other steering links.An alternate steering mechanism is a rack and pinion, a three bar linkage that eliminates the drag link by directly moving the center link.The length of a drag link can affect the geometry and thus the steering ratio. Severe wear of this part can affect the wheel alignment such as Toe-in or Toe-out settings. This can drastically affect the handling and stability of the vehicle at speed.
It is a device which both makes your steering wheel's output, "the pinion" connect with the "rack", a device which affects your front wheels forward angle. It also controls the ratio of steering wheel input to actual steering output. High performance cars will have a relatively low ratio steering ratio, meaning minor steering wheel input will dramatically affect steering output while ordinary passenger vehicles will have higher ratios requiring more steering wheel input to produce a similar amount of vehicle steering.
