    They are a pain. Need a steering wheel puller. You have to be careful with the telescoping shaft as you remove it since the parts can fall all over the place.

    What?! You don't need a steering wheel puller. You can gain access to it by removing lower dash cover and you'll see the wires. I'll scan a diagram so you can see. All I did on mine was spliced it in. The other switch is still there on the column, one that failed

    I thought it was part of the turn signal switch inside the column too, all I've ever heard of was digging in thru the column from the wheel side to replace it to fix the problem.

    You guys are talking about the lever on the column, lol. This is down further on the column itself, down underneath dash. Sorry, I haven't scanned diagram, cannot locate my book...

    Not lever, switch. I guess things changed since your year. I looked it up in my manual and it says cornering lamp switch in steering column in turn-hazard switch and the first steps of replacing it is to remove steering wheel, ignition lock and everything else from the top part of the column.

    Question about the B pillar lights.

    Can anyone post a pic of a repair of the EL light they have done?

    To gain access to the light you have to remove the B pillar interior components correct?

    Yeah, in 85 the turn signal switch is deep in the column and needs the removal of the wheel to get at it.

    ok, i've just ordered a Workshop Repair manual for my 1989 Brougham, i will wait until that comes before i do anything. But in general, it sounds like a rather tricky job?

    Nice one, I had the same no bulb problem on my 1990 borugham.

    To you guys trying to remove the opera lights, it's very easy, just remove interior covers and loosen the 4 nuts to the outer chrome covers and opera lights. Be careful not to drop the nuts though, I did drop one into the B-pillar and it was never seen again. I did not do an EL-replacement since I'm unfortunantly very low on cash right now. Instead I replaced the EL-tape with LED strips and it is not nearly as good looking as EL but I had some laying around the garage so why not put them to some use.
