the indicator and wiper sticks come as a unit, all ya gotta do is pull the steering wheel and the column suround off and then i think theres only one or two screws holding the assembly on. the hardest part is gettin the wheel back on straight i found the best way is to mark the end of the column and the splines on the wheel, good luck mate. :)

G'day disconnect the battery and leave for 10 minutes.
undo the 2 Philips head screws from the shroud surround the the steering column, then there's 2 more holding the top shroud on.

Pop the 2 small round covers off the back of the steering wheel, and undo the 2 10mm bolt behind the cover.
remove airbag and unplug it.
Use a t50 torx bit, loosen off the bolt in the center of the steering wheel, but dont don't remove it completely.
remove wheel.
unplug clock spring the round part that was plugged into the cruis/horn/airbag.
slide it off, the collumn.
then 3 phillips heads screws to remove the wiper indicator arm assembly. unplug and change.
reassemble, everything good luck with the column shroud.

Make sure you get a high spec el assembly as low spec don't have the intermittent wiper function, and ef use black arms not grey.

lastly the wheel shouldn't be hard to line up due to it have a square spline, on ef onwards, make sure the wheels up straight when you remove, and refit it to suit.
