For both these, it is necessary to remove the steering column covers. This is fiddly but not difficult: two screws on top, two underneath, and two inside, remove the choke control (the knob unclips from its shaft), and wiggle the plastic round the ignition switch. The flasher unit is underneath to the left and simply unclips and pulls out. The indicator switch assembly - which has all the switches on it, you can't separate them - is held in place with two screws and the everlasting plastic clips. Remove this and then unplug the cable; this is another fiddly job (why can't the makers make things easy?) as you have to push the retaining clip in, then hinge the plug down before it will come away. I'd advise you to buy a spare switch unit, as they are prone to fail. Known stock faults are the indicator auto-cancel mechanism (it's plastic and splits) and the rear wiper switch (the contacts burn out because they're overloaded by the motor. There's no relay on this circuit for some reason, I'd reccommend fitting one). Unless you've got a very early model, it is possible to dismantle these and repair them, though since you can often find them on Ebay for only a few pounds it isn't really worth the bother, though a new unit at

The flasher unit on the Ford Escort is located on the 1996 model under the steering wheel and directly under the indicator switch. Take the panel off the underside of the steering column, and the flasher unit is under the indicator switch. It looks like a black square box; just pull out.

Under the actual indicator. There are 5 screws holding the steering column cover together, remove them (all underneath the column) then under the indicator you will see the relay switch (black box thingy) Why do I know? I have a fiesta mk4 and the relay has gone, resulting in no indicators at all.. not even on the dashboard.

The turn signal flasher relay switch and the emergency flasher relay switch are the same switch. The relay switch might be labeled as the emergency flasher switch, but it is also the signal flasher relay switch.

My data is showing the indicator relay as being part of the hazard light switch.

First replace the TURN SIGNAL FLASHER. Even if one side works the other side may not if the flasher is weak. Your car has a turn signal flasher and a hazard flasher and usually they are interchangeable but run separate circuits. Turn on the side that works and follow the clicking noise to track it down. If that does not do it, most of these problems are then generally located within the turn sinal switch in the column and the steering wheel will need to be pulled and the switch changed out.
