It's really easy. There is a blank filling a hole directly below the hazard sw. Use a small screwdriver, and carefully prise this out. Insert your finger into the hole, and up into the back of the hazard switch and ease it forward. you can prise it out with a screwdriver also, but i found this method offered less chance of damage to the dash.

On a side note, my 2001 wagon has the heated seats & so the blank is below not only the hazard relay switch but the heated seats control knob. So it's unreachable from the blank spot. That being said I just popped the switch out as described. (I used a butter knife) to get the face of the button off then pliers to pull the switch out. Easy as pie.

The flasher circuit is in the hazard switch in the dash.

The flasher is built into the emergency hazard switch. Just pop out the bottom pieces and its then easier to get your finger in and pop out the flasher.

This seems to be a cammon fault with VW/Audi cars. U will need to replace the hazard light switch mechanism which contains the switching contacts. I had to replace same in my last cars (VW/Audi)

The flasher is built into the hazard switch. You need to pull the dash to replace the switch. It costs about $45 & is available through Chevy dealers.

The flasher unit is incorporated as part of the hazard flasher switch. Just prise the switch out gently, then release the two red tabs at the rear top and bottom of the switch. Once they are released you can remove the plug and wires.

On my 2002 Passat the hazards and the turn signals all operate through the same flasher unit that operats the hazards. This is behind the hazard switch. See related questions for removal details.

there is not exactly a flasher relay for this car. technically your hazard switch is the flasher relay. you can get this "hazard switch " for about $30 on gmpartsdirect.com. i had to replace mine last year and i was also under the impression that i needed a flasher relay since the turn signal would just stay on. I had to fudge around with hazard switch push it a few time for the signals to work. that is when i figured it out that hazard switch is the flasher relay. i hope this helps.

It's in the hazard warning switch. You need to replace the switch.

On my 2001 it is part of the Hazard switch. You have to replace the entire switch on a 2001.

The flasher is broken. It is located inside the hazard switch and easy to replace. The switch is about $30 from the dealership and takes 10 minutes to replace.

The blinker relay is broken. It is located inside the hazard switch. Replace the switch and it will fix your problem.

The turn and hazard flasher relays are incorporated into hazard switch.

It is built into the hazard switch. Take a small screwdriver and pry the red triangle cover off then take needle nose pliers and pull the switch straight out. The switch and relay are together.

The flasher is actually the hazard switch itself. If removed turn signals will not function. Just pop the old switch out and unplug it to replace if broken (if present and signal don't work).

The flasher is part of the hazard switch and they are replaced as a unit. Remove the trim piece from the dash. This is attached with screws in some places and press fit in others. Once the trim is loose it is a simple matter to replace the switch.

I believe the hazard switch is used as the turn signal flasher in 71 bus. No extra flasher involved... I believe the hazard switch is used as the turn signal flasher in 71 bus. No extra flasher involved...

I would suspect The hazard switch has failed and/or the flasher relay also. Replace the relay first & see if problem still exsists. If does, hold onto relay & replace hazard switch or combination of both.

The flasher is part of the hazard light switch.
