You should pull the cover behind the turn signal lever, and remove the wiring connector before pulling on the turn signal arm for removal of the arm. You can only remove it if the wiper speed is in the off position. You also have to remove the clock spring which the instructions do not cover. There is a circlip at the base of the clockspring.

You do not have to remove the turn signal actuating arm from the cancel cam.

Since you won't be going any further into the column, I do not have any more updates or warnings.

Apparently you have a different problem than he does. There are a number of issues that could cause your problem, and if you want to fix it, you should start a thread about it.

I just didn't want another thread on here if it was being answered, I am sorry I still need to check things on mine before I jump in to a whole thread

Sorry. When I got my car wired up I turned on key and wipers started. Wouldnt quit. Moved stalk around and wiper control was gone. Had to unplug them til I could get new switch. I'll try to do write up with pics since ours is just little different.

The problem is probably the black box on the wiper motor. There are 4 torx screws holding it on. If you can not get one from a junk yard, I have a couple listed in my for sale thread.
