First, I am not sure what the part that turns off the turn signals is called.

Second, can this part be purchased new?

Third, how do you replace it?

I have all the repair manuals in the barn but I was hoping to get a quick explaination so I have an idea of how tough a task I should be planning.

Thanks to all who take time to help so many.

You mean the cancelling cam?

Hope you have a steering wheel puller kit handy, that wheel has to come off. Roughly from memory, there are (I think) like 3 screws that hold on a cover plate, the horn wiring junk has to come out, and you should be at the switch and cancelling cam assembly. The cam is what causes the make/break contacts in the signal switch to do their thing. There are different types, Guide is one make and some other? Also, tilt wheels use a whole different set of part #s. Sorry, kinda hazy tonight
I will recommend this, inspect carefully while you're in there, there are little return springs that make sure the signals cancel when the wheel turns enough (after you make your turn). Make sure everything looks a-okay in there (the signal contacts are also notorious for corrosion (means no brake lights!!!) IF anything looks "iffy", restore or replace. Get good parts since this is a pain to pull apart again if something goes wrong (insert my famous "use only AC/Delco when available" line here)___.

It's probably just the spring(s). They are available in the "HELP" section of most auto parts stores for about $2.00

The tools needed can be borrowed from your nearest Autozone if you don't have them.

You will need a steering wheel puller and a tool that presses the metal plate down so you can remove the clip from the steering shaft. (can't remember the technical name) This metal plate is used to lock the steering wheel with the key out.

Very easy job to do with the right tools.
