As mentioned above, replacing the turn signal switch and / or lever will involve opening up the steering column. Make sure to disconnect the battery and take any other precautions specific to your model to deactivate the airbags. You do not want the air bags to deploy while you are working in the steering column. Otherwise, the task should be completed easily enough with no need for special tools.
Replace a turn signal switch or combination switch assembly by connecting the electroconnector and sliding the new switch assembly onto its bracket; learn how in this free auto-repair video.

Re: Replacing turn signal switch?
"Legal disclaimer: Any repairs that you do on your car are at your own risk. I take no responsibility for any issues, problems, injuries, damage, etc. that you might cause yourself, someone else, or your car."
LOL at the legal disclaimer. I have the same problem. I am not going to replace it because it doesn't bother me.
NOTE: There is a video on YouTube of a guy replacing his turn signal switch on a Pontiac G6 as well, if these instructions are difficult to understand or you would prefer visual instruction. Also, the turn signal switch might feel rough or stiff in signal selecting, but it should smooth out during your first drive."}">
Since replacing a turn signal switch will differ depending on the make and model of your car, you will need to obtain a copy of the repair manual for your make and model. Follow along in the repair manual along with these instructions in case anything differs from these instructions for your make and model.
