MID-YEAR TURN SIGNAL SWITCH REPLACEMENT
If you have a bad turn signal switch in your 1967 Corvette, then you know what a pain in the butt it is to have to hold the switch down with your finger until a turn is completed because the switch won't click on and blink by itself. Undoubtedly, the problem is the switch itself and you probably would have replaced it a long time ago – if you could have gotten a replacement switch. Therein was the problem: nobody – and we mean nobody – had this switch in stock. No reproductions. No NOS parts. Not even any used ones. Nada. Zip. Zilch. If you needed one of these you were just plain SOL – sadly out of luck. Well, here's the good news: the folks at Lectric Limited  now have it available, so there's no excuse for not replacing that bad puppy right away. Installing the switch isn't all that difficult, but it is time consuming and you'll need a steering wheel puller, screwdrivers and a socket set. We also suggest that you either have an 'exploded' diagram of the steering column components or take digital pictures every step of the way, since it's easy to get confused as to the order of things when it's time to reassemble. Before you even start to work on the steering column, disconnect the negative lead of the battery so that you don't get a jolt or have to hear the horn sounding while you're working on it. That being said, here's what it takes to replace the turn signal switch in a 1967 Corvette.
The old, broken switch is on the left and the new replacement unit from Lectric Limited on the right. The arrow points to the broken plastic dog (held by the forceps) that engages to keep the signal blinking.
