    Replacing blinker switch

    Have any of you had to replace the blinker switch on a 95 blazer? I've found one on a 96 blazer and wanted to see how hard it is to change out. Step by step would be nice if ya can. Thanks in advance.

    Hey bro thanks. It helps alot. I got one today and since it was a wrecked truck I didn't have to take off the wheel. But I got what I needed. Just wondering will the blazer still run if I leave off the air bag? Thanks again.

    yes the blazer will still run.but the airbag light will be on untill its hooked back up.do not put the fuse back in untill you have the bag reinstalled.

    Ok Cool. I'm glad it will still run. I may not put it back on since I want to get a aftermarket wheel for it. Thanks for the tips.
