Where is the turn signal flasher located on a '97 Ford Ranger?

Take plastic panel off under stearing column (4 screws - two holding on hood release). There's a metal panel behind that (take off 5 small bolts). It's to the left of the stearing column. could be blue or yellow with 5 wires coming off it. It slides off a plastic attachment. I Know it says in the manual it's to the right of the stearing column..........but not always.
