Default Turn signal relay?

I've got a '91 900 and am trying to replace the turn signal relay switch. I was told by a local mechanic that it was located under the dash board (drivers side) and was difficult to reach but it could be done. Well...I can't even locate the old switch and it looks like the whole dash has to come off in order to do so! If ayone has a suggestion, I'd appreciate it!

Welcome to the forum! One thing that will be very handy for you if you continue to work on your own car will be a Bently manual. Also, the search utility is very helpful on this forum. Check the two links below:

Thanks Dustin! That's exactly the info I needed. Next time I'll do a little more digging before asking!

Well depending on your flexibility you can replace your turn signal relay without taking much of anything apart.

I was able to get to mine by sitting on the driver's seat facing backwards with the seat back down and my head in the footwell (the pose is reminiscent of the apollo astronauts). Remove a single srcew (I believe it's a Torx 15 or 20) from the footwell heating vent and bend it out of the way by sticking the end of it behind one of the foot pedals. Now you should be able to get at the turn signal relay. I learned this quick 5-10 minute trick from my mechanic but it only really works for the fit and nimble.
