Best Answer

the easy way is to buy a used steering column from a junk yard. If you have the proper tools [steering wheel puller,tilt wheel spring intaller and remover,torx bits] its simple ! 1st remove the steering wheel 2nd take the 3 torx bolts out,unscrew turn signal arm, unplug the harness under the dash then lift the switch out. Installation is the same.

I think last answer is not a good one. Simnply remove three screws at the bottom front part of the steeering column poastic covers and remove the plastic convers. There are 2 torx bols at tha left side. Remove them.
