Just replaced the turn/dip/horn switch, no problem. But the wiper switch was mounted on the old on and when removed sprang apart. Anyone have a diagram or exploded view of this switch? Trying to put the pieces back where they belong.

Figured out everything but where the v shaped brass spring goes. The spring has a circle wound into the bottom that looks like it will fit into the bottom of the pivot post on the switch, but where do the "arms" of the v go?

Did you ever get this sorted? I just did the same thing...boy did I feel stupid!!

I found a picture which told the story. This link has a picture but I think it's a RHD car so reverse this.

The little piece of brass installs between vertical brass contacts and the end of the switch...sandwiched if you will

Hope that helps

That may be the clue that I needed. Now all I need is three hands with 6 fingers on each to reassemble & hold the switch together until I get a screw into the pivot post.

Any luck with that spring? I think we have all experienced this puzzle, including Yours Truly. It goes in in a way that you wouldn't think, but once you get it right, it will make sense! I tried that link as well and couldn't pull it up. Scroll around and I hope you find a diagram . All I can say is that it does NOT go in the way you think it would! Once you get it, draw a picture and keep it in a repair manual. Good Luck.

Mike:

I have rebuilt fixed a few switches, and they never seen to last long as the plastic gets pretty brittle and various bits get pretty worn.

If you decide to simply replace the switch, these guys have been a good supplier: Auto Electrical Spares
