How do you remove the turn signal shaft?

Asked by Jun 06, 2013 at 01:37 PM about the 1972 Pontiac Le Mans

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi, I can't get the turn signal shaft to turn or loosen in order to replace it. Is there a screw that you have to loosen? If so where is it located?

If you turn signal lever is only the lever then you have to remove the steering wheel and lock plate to gain access to the turn signal lever screw. If you turn signal lever is a multi function lever then it just pulls out of the switch.

When you say turn signal shaft are you talking about the lever ? The lever itself does not turn, there is a screw holding it on to the switch inside the steering column. If you do not have the proper tools to remove the steering wheel & lock plate , do not even try it ! Get yourself a repair manual at a local swap meet ,there is always somebody selling manuals for almost every car for cheap . Good Luck !
