Having some problems with my turn signal switch , I got a new one and was just wondering if anyone has any input on how hard it is to swap this out and if anyone knows where to get any online instructions or guides to kind of help out?
thanks in advance!

The switch is easy to replace. The steering wheel doesn't have to be removed.
First you remove the small cover between the steering column and the instrument cluster. It just pulls off. Next you unscrew the tilt column lever. After that you remove the 3 screws that hold the upper and lower steering column covers and remove the lower cover. With the lower cover removed you can remove the ignition lock cylinder. To do that you turn the key to the run position and then with a small pick or screwdriver or nail you push in the "button" that holds the lock cylinder in. It is on the lower side of the lock cylinder housing. It's easier to see that for me to describe. Then you remove the top cover. With the covers off you can now see the multifunction switch. There are 2 connectors on the back of it and 2 Torx head screws on the side where the signal light lever is. Remove the screws and connectors and the switch pulls straight off. Like the manual says....reassemble in reverse order.
Definitely check the bulb, fast clicking with no light is usually a bad bulb filament. The MFS problems usually show up in the windshield wipers not working right or the headlights going out when put on bright.
I dont think its my turn signal switch but can I get some help. My turn signals all of the sudden quit working. The wipers and the Hazard lights still work. Would the a burned out bulb cause both signals not to work?
