    spray the stalk and after a day or so it should stop clicking,if it dont best is to replace hazard switch,if not then stalk,but it does only need cleaning. take the surround off the steering column and stalk will slide upwards and off.

    does the stalk have to be removed or can you just spray into the steering colum where the stalk begins
