Hi there,
I'm wondering how tough it is to R&R the turn signal switch? I'm looking at another 1993SSEi and the turn signal lever just flops around, obviously broken somewhere. Do I need to remove the steering wheel to fix it, or can I get to it via that little cover that comes off at the side of the steering column??

Thanks,
Adam

I cheated when I did mine. I replaced the whole column :P

You need to remove the steering wheel and the lock plate.

Alrighty,
Got some pics of the problem.
The bracket that holds the switch in is broken:
Image

A pin passes from the top of this broken piece, through the hole in the multi-function switch, then connects to the bottom bracket. The bottom bracket actuates the left / right turn function. (If I push down / lift up on the bottom bracket, it activates the signals)
Image

Is there an easy way to fix this? It seems as though the switches are fine, its the bracket that is giving the trouble.
Will everything have to be taken apart to get to this piece? Can it be JB Welded?

Thanks,
Adam

You can always try JB weld but I don't know how well it would hold. The only way to replace the switch outright would be to tear the column down far enough to get the plastic collar off the shaft so that you can slide the wire harness up the inside of the column and then out. Its a PITA to do which makes swapping the entire column easier... just save the old column for spares though (its got other switches and goodies on it that are good to have around).
