How to replace turn indicator stalk?


Recommended Posts

Hi,

My '03 TT's turn signal stalk no longer cancels and won't hold in positions (both left and right turns) after being freed from getting stuck during use! I can feel some plastic pieces inside jamming the action of the stalk. I later removed the above loose piece from the rubber boot opening so at least I can activate the turn signals in both directions. So I am pretty sure the mechanism is broken! If anyone knows the DIY for replacing the turn signal stalk, can you please help me out here? Please provide a fair bit of detail as I am new to working on porsche. Thanks.

Regards,

Vince

You're going to need to replace the entire switch unit, its a pretty common failure. Luckily its a fairly straight forward procedure. There's bound to be a DIY for steering wheel removal around here and if you can do that then you're halfway there. After the wheel is off you remove the clock spring and the steering column trim. Loosen the 8mm pinch bolt and the entire unit will slide off the column. Undo the electrical connectors and reinstall in reverse order.

Tools you'll need (off the top of my head)

T30 torx to remove airbag

24mm to remove steering wheel

Phillips to remove clock spring and column trim

8mm to loosen column pinch bolt on switch assembly

Vince did you find the proceedure? My 02 just did the same thing I think this looks like a DIY

If you found the proceedure please post if you don't mind. I will look myself, possibly time to purchase a servie manual

Sincerely,

Mike
