There are two torx head screws on the lower half of the plastic cover that will need to come out. Then the lower half will drop down on the end closest to you, but, keep in mind, the end that is under the dash, latches to the top half of the cover on a hinge type of assembly, so, you will need to be careful not to break the hinge assembly. After you have the lower half off, the upper half is held by a set screw assembly right below the turn signal arm. The end that you turn looks like the head of a torx head screwdriver, by turning this, it will loosen a screw that threads into to inner side of the upper cover. Will need to be careful to make sure that this screw gets unthreaded, otherwise, you could break the part of the cover on the inner side that holds it down.

Outside of that, you should be good to go.

It's a real pain, but you have to remove the plastic cover over the steering column, and tilt the steering column all the way down to get to the screws, there is two at the left of the switch and one on top. It should lift straight up off of a electrical connection and the new one just plugs in, then replace screws and plastic column cover, (the cover is the real harrd part)(both off and on),
