Please identify this part!

Saturday I was driving my Daughter's '95 Wrangler. I used the turn signal and something snapped. Then, the turn signal lever just flopped around and didn't do anything. I removed the steering wheel, turn signal switch and wiper switch. They all look fine. But this part fell out. It is black plastic and is approximately 3/4" wide by 1 3/4" long. It must be some kind of a stop or actuator, but I don't know where it goes. Any ideas?

I have a steering column apart right now, for mine. I don't remember ever seeing THAT.

I'm sure that it broke off from somewhere. But, I can't find where!

I think it's the piece that goes behind the turn signal lever to push on the rod that switches your headlights to bright.

I can't see what part you are talking about.

That whole piece. It's two parts. Does that pic compare to what you see in your column?

Where I'm pointing is where the lever attaches to (and pivots on)

I'm in deeper than that. Are you saying that you think it may be part of the plastic housing?

I looked, but don't see where it may have come form. I'll look further tomorrow when I have better light. Thanks!
