Somehow I managed to snag my turn signal getting out of the car and bent the living snot out of it. Question is, are they straight or is there a bit of an angle on it? I imagine it's just threaded in (feels like it anyway) if I can straightn it out enough to unscrew it without breaking it I'll be happy!:bloated:

Its straight and yes they are threaded. There should be 2 slots on it where you can put a wrench(small) on it to loosen and remove.

thanks

If you get it out you might put a nut of the appropriate size in the vise, screw the stalk into it and work it back into straight. This way you won't mess up the threads of the stalk. Just a thought...

YEP - that was the ticket - IT wasn't easy to bend - Don't know how the he11 I bent it that bad! (Had to hold the base of it with pliers while I got it to where I could even unscrew it) Took advantage of having it out to clean it up and get some pitting that was starting occur off......a fine brass brush works wonders on chromed/rusty bits BTW. Looks like new!
