    1996 Eldo turn signal cancel

    1996 Eldo turn signal won't cancel from a left turn only. Right turn cancel and all other turn signal stalk functions work okay.
    The parts breakdown shows a "cancel cam" (PN: 26047013) only for a column shift which can't be for a 96 Eldo.
    Is the cancel function for this year part of the switch assembly or is my parts source diagram no good?

    Thanks, Jon

    Assuming the wheel is straight when on the freeway, the problem is usually the spring that pulls the cancel cam back to center, off.

    Is the $0.50 return spring that snaps (there are 2 of them left and right).

    Here is what you are looking for:

    You can see the 2 springs at 12 and 7 o'clock.

    To replace you need:
    1. Disconnect the battery 15-minute before starting to work (no 2 and down)
    2. On the back of the steering wheel locate 4 holes, inside there are ~T25 bolt, these are what is holding the airbag/horn assembly
    3. While AWAY from facing directly the air bag (think if that thing blows in your face will break your neck) remove the airbag and disconnect the wires (there is just enough slack to slide the hand underneath).
    4. Deposit the airbag FACE UP away from your working area (pets and such).
    5. Disconnect the steering wheel controls and using a steering wheel puller remove the steering wheel (I believe is a 22-mm socket the central nut)
    6. Carefully remove the clock spring assembly (let it hang) and MAKE SURE you will not spin it (recommend to use tape to lock it from spinning)
    7. Disconnect the steering wheel locking cam (there is a spring clip around the shaft holding it in place).
    8. Now you see the image above.

    Reverse steps to install all back. Don't worry about the steering wheel position it only goes one way, you can't make an error.
    Last thing: connect the battery.
