No that is the actual piece that engages ur high beams, same exact situation happened to me and it took three hands just to get that little piece in then snap the plastic cover on the steering column. It rests against a metal rod that looks like an L. Look on the inside on the plastic cover and u should see a mark from where it use to slide. That's what helped me figure out proper placement

Yep. Check YouTube on rebuilding a steering column and how to take it apart. You will probably have to take your lock cylinder out and remove the outter collar to put it back in. I think I might have a spare that I can take better pics of.

Here's pice 1. This is off of a tilt column.


The plastic piece goes inside the rear part just behind the turn signal lever. The most forward section will have to slide forward so you can remove the rear plastic section. There are 3 torx screws holding the fist section on. Again youll have to remove your lock cylinder, and your tilt wheel lever if you have one. The turn signal lever is fine to leave on.

Pic 2 shows sliding the rear cover off.



Pic 3 shows where the piece is supposed to sit. You should put a little grease on it so it stays put when you slide it all back together.



While getting all this apart isn't really that hard. It's best to watch the YouTube videos so that you know how to take the steering wheel apart. You will need some special tools as the main retaining plate is under spring pressure. You can get one at most autoparts stores. Most Chevy columns of the same year have the same parts as our Jeeps. I believe they were standard Saginaw parts.

As for removal of your lock cylinder it depends on your year. Early models were held in by a small torx screw. 94's like mine have a detent pin.

Also there is a small electric clip that goes in by the cylinder. If you break it when you remove it, it's no big deal. It's for that annoying key buzzer. I've broken everyone I've done. LOL A Chiltons or Haynes book might have some info to help you along as well. You don't need to pull the whole column. You can do it in your Jeep. Just take your time and don't lose any screws.

Mine looks a bit different than yours. But, that's obviously where it goes.

Thanks for your help!

This picture has the part you are looking for. It looks different because it is properly seated. I came across this part several months ago when trying to fix my horn. I put it in the wrong way (thats what she said) and had to take it out and put it in correctly.

Thats that dohicky that connects your turn signal lever to the multifunction switch. It's held on by 1 screw..

Don't feel too bad, these do break. Here's another current thread with the same broken part. Not sure yet of the resolution to his broken part, but you did confirm it is available at the dealership.

Forgot the link earlier, sorry. There may be useful information in here for you.

You can get them at the junkyard out of Cherokees and most chevy's off the 90's vehicles. Most of those columns use the same parts. Same with the multifunction switch as those are really pricey!
