@timbertiger20, you probably won't need to change the switch, just the lever and possibly that housing. Check this link:

@computerguy, it depends on your model and options. Mine is a 92 with tilt steering and the stalk pulls right out of its place with a good tug and pops back in. I did what you're doing, manual return from left turn and then my actuator arm broke:

good luck!


Wrenching isn't the problem, it's the brains attached to the hands...unfortunately, I'm lacking some of the former so that's why I'm asking you guys!!

The switch threads in. But you have to get the old threaded part out! The plastic piece on mine has to do with the wiper assembly somehow. I just can't seem to find a part number, diagram or picture for that part

The turn signal lever does not thread into anything....it pushes into the reciever housing and snaps into place. To get the broken part out, you have to take the wheel off, take the pieces off under that, then you should be able to pry the broken part out with a right angle pick.

I personally drilled mine out with a cordless drill (not all the way to the bottom of the stalk) and then used a sheet rock screw to thread into the hole (use a drill thats a little bit smaller then the screw) and yanked it out. The tabs have to be lined up for it to come out


The threaded version above doesnt look like its a factory part. It looks like someone added a wood screw to the end of it for some unknown reason.

Thats what I was thinkin...and the threads are not square with the shaft. I will try to get a pic for you today on what it should look like. Its basically just a rod with a detent ring cut into it...and thats where they all break.
