1998 Toyota Camry repair ???

The daughter has a 1998 Toyota Camry (4 Cyl)and I either need to slice in/rig up a ON-OFF-ON (SPDT) switch for her turn signals or I need to get her a new Turn Signal Switch.

I've found some electrical schematics, so I can identify the wiring colors for each signal circuit, but what I cannot find is the procedure for changing the actual turn signal/combination switch if I choose to go that route.

I'm trying to verify if the air bag(SRS) and steering wheel HAVE TO come off to change this, or will the steering column covers come off with the steering wheel still in place? The appear to be three screws holding the cover on.

I'm still healing, so I will be directing the labor instead of doing it, but need some reference material if possible. PDF copies of the manual sections would be great.

Thanks :

generally you do not need to remove the steering wheel or airbag to replace a combination switch. The covers are designed to be removed with the wheel in place. Most of them have 3-5 screws from underneath as well as clips which hold the top and bottom pieces together. Remove the covers and it should expose 2 screws(if it's like pretty much every japanese built vehicle) remove the screws and you'll have to pry on it a little bit as there is generally a pin that locks it in place.

Thanks!

That's what I was thinking, but wanted to check first before I broke something. Not like it would matter much on this car though.
