    A few days ago I got in the car quickly and accidentally broke off my blinker stalk. Since I like fixing things on my car, I did a little research and found that the entire unit that holds all control stalks around the steering wheel is one unit that can easily replaced. I doubled check the official service manual to see to see if I needed any special tools or materials to replace it but it all looked straight forward.

    The entire repair took maybe 30 min. I think next time I could probably do it in 15 min. I documented the steps in a little video. I hope this will be helpful to some out here.

    Great job. Wonder if it is as easy on the auto pilot stock.

    Cool, great job.
    I did my door handles. Took longer to get right size tools than fix. I now have 4 spares in case another breaks.

    I believe it’s the same amount of work. It is a very similar unit with just slightly different design. They have the parts for the AP cars as well as the Model 3 and it looks very similar.
