CHEVY GREEN PLASTIC PIECE, SWITCHES BLINKER

2002 Chevrolet Avalanche

Steering problem

Ok, so I have replaced my entire ignition assembly attempting to fix my problem. In order to get to the ignition screws I had to remove the circular green piece that trips the blinker off after a turn. This piece has a very tough spring behind it and a *snap ring* to hold it in place. Is there an easy way to compress that spring to get that snap ring to pop in its proper place? I cant seem to get it past the first groove. Thanks

I think you are talking about the spring that holds the lock in place. There is a tool that screws on the end of the steering shaft and will push the spring down. Should have been used forremoval too. An auto parts store may rent that tool.
