Q:I have a 98 Chevy Lumina . How do you get the plastic part around the steering column off?
A:For replacing this BWD Turn Signal Switch - part# S3264, park the car with the steering wheel centered and the wheels straight ahead. Locate and remove the "Airbag" or "SRS" fuse in the passenger side fusebox. There is more than one fuse for the airbag system. Remove the Negative battery cable. Remove the trim panels underneath the driver's side of the dashboard. Locate the yellow "CPA" connector for the airbag underneath the dash to the right of the steering column and disconnect. Remove the blue (or green) pin from the center of the connector to allow for the tab to be depressed. Use the #30 TORX bit (or the corresponding Hex bit) to loosen the 2 bolts that secure the airbag to the steering wheel, located on the back of the wheel. The bolts will stay inside of the wheel. You will have to turn the wheel to the left to get to the left hand bolt. Lift the airbag module away from the steering wheel. Disconnect the horn wire and RSWC connector (if available.) The horn is disconnected by following the red wire down to the white plastic "cylinder" sticking up from the column. Press in on the cylinder and rotate it counter-clockwise, then it should pop out (it's spring loaded.). Set the airbag aside. Carry it with the driver's side facing away from you. Set it down on a workbench facing up. Point the wheels straight ahead once again. Remove the steering wheel nut. Install the steering wheel puller and remove the steering wheel. Remove the snap ring that retains the clockspring. Lift the clockspring off of the steering shaft and let it hang. Do not allow the yellow inner ring of the clockspring to rotate, otherwise you will have to reset it later. Draw a mark across the black and yellow rings for alignment purposes, and place a piece of tape across the rings to prevent them from turning. Remove the "wave" washer. Remove the plastic cover on the left side exposing the washer and dimmer switches. Pull the multifunction stalk straight out and disconnect the cruise control wiring from the washer switch. The part that's exposed now is the Lock Plate. It has a spring pressing up against the back of it, and it is held in place by a retaining clip. You will need to use the lock plate compressor tool to press down on the lock plate to take tension off the spring in order to remove the retaining clip. Use the lock plate compressor to depress the lock plate. The center of the tool threads on to the steering shaft, and the 2 "forks" press down on the lock plate. Use the 2 small screwdrivers to remove the lock plate retaining clip. Have patience with this step, 'cause it takes a while to work the clip loose. If you bend the clip, no worries, you can easily bend it back into shape. Remove the lock plate compressor. Lift off the lock plate, paying attention to where you have it aligned. You will need to align it in the same position when reassembling the column. Carefully remove the hazzard flasher knob from the top of the column. Remove the cancelling cam and spring. Remove the 2 screws that hold the dimmer switch to the signal switch. Remove the 3 screws retaining the signal switch in place. You will have to move the switch into the "right signal on" position to remove the final screw. Locate the bulkhead connector underneath the dash to the right of the steering column, loosen the large bolt in the center of the connector and pull the connector straight out it. The bolt has an 8mm head, BTW. The signal switch harness piggybacks to the ignition switch harness. With the Bulkhead connector unbolted and removed, remove the blue retaining tabs and slide the signal switch harness *backwards* to remove it. It only slides in one direction, BTW. You may need to wedge a tiny screwdriver in the center of the signal switch harness to get it to disengage from the bulkhead. If you have RSWC, disconnect the RSWC connector from the signal switch. Feed the wires up the column. You will have to first angle the harness so it will slip into the channel of the column. Pull on the signal switch to aid in feeding the wires up. Installation is the reverse of removal. When you get to point of reinstalling the clockspring, align the tab at the top centered with the notches near 12 O'Clock on the column. The springs are easily removed with a needle-nose pliers. Reassembly is the reverse of removal.

The multifunction switch is located inside your steering wheel column and is fairly easy to access. Replacement will take you approximately 30 minutes.
