How to change the Multi-Function Switch on a 2002 Jeep Wrangler Sport

Would appreciate any instruction from any one with experience on this.

My wife's Jeep needs a new switch. It is called the Multi-Function Switch but most of us call it the turn signal switch.

It controls the turn signals, headlights, brightlights, foglamps, and I think the dashboard lights too.

It is on the left-hand side of the steering column.

I certainly would appreciate ANY help. Thanks!

Its a pretty simple job to do, heres the low down out if the manual because Im to lazy to type it, rather copy and paste

Remove the steering column opening cover from the instrument panel.

Remove the two screws that secure the lower steering column shroud to the upper shroud

If the vehicle is equipped with the optional tilt steering column, move the tilt steering column to the fully lowered position and leave the tilt release lever in the released (down) position.

Remove both the upper and lower shrouds from the steering column.

Disconnect the cross body wire harness connector for the left multi-function switch from the connector receptacle on the back of the switch.

Disconnect the cross body wire harness connector for the right multi-function switch from the connector receptacle on the back of the switch.

Remove the two screws that secure the multi-function switch assembly to the upper steering column housing

Remove the multi-function switch assembly from the upper steering column housing.

Remove the two small screws that secure the right multi-function switch to the left multi-function switch mounting housing.

Grasp the right multi-function switch control stalk firmly and pull the switch toward the right far enough to disengage the alignment pins on the top (1) and bottom (2) of the right switch housing from the alignment ramps on the left multi-function switch mounting housing.

Remove the right multi-function switch from the left multi-function switch.

Remove the combination flasher from the connector receptacle on the back of the left multi-function switch
