When I put the lever in the "right turn" position it returns automatically after the turn. Such is not the case when putting in the "left turn" position, have to bring it back manually.

Is this just some kind of spring and is it easy to get at? What would be involved to fix?

Appreciate it.

I have the same problem, I think its called a "cancel cam". You have to remove the steering wheel to get at it.

I'm not sure of the availability of these.

I just find it a little strange that it always seems to be the left that brakes and not the right.

Find a new cam and it will be as good as new.

The part numbers for left and right turn signal cancelling springs are, 1964784 and 1964785. They are less than 25 cents, and any GM dealership can order them by these part numbers if they don't have them in stock.

WannaRace, The reason the left spring breaks more often than the right is when approaching an intersecion preparing to turn into a left turn lane, a lot of people will hold down on their turn signal lever to keep the turn signal on instead of letting it cancel and having to turn it on again once in the left turn lane. This puts undue stress on the left cancelling spring. Just let it cancel and turn the signal on again and it will last just as long as the right one.
Here at work with 1500 plus GM vehicles to take care of, we install 100 left cancel springs for each 1 right spring we have to replace.
