Turn Signal Switch Removal

What is the best way to remove the switch and the wiring from the steering column once the switch is disconnected? How do you get the wiring harness and connector out of the column?

Thanks

Larry, i'm not sure of your year but it pulls out the top. slide the wire connector up inside the steering column and pull it out. last one i did was on a '55 and when i pulled out the old i pulled a wire (fishtape) with it and pulled the new one in for reinstall...


hope i helped in some small way

I am wondering how one gets a hole big enough to slide the connector through. I must have to unbolt the column support and drop it down a bit.

Thanks for the comments

You do have to drop the column support and let the column drop down and the you can snake the plug and wiring out through the column. At least that is the way mine comes out of my 65.

Looks like I was a couple of minutes late with my post. Glad you got it working.
