I took the covers off the steering column. 3 Philips screws. Took the turn signal switch out of the column, 2 torques screws. Took it in the house. Took it apart, 5 torques screws and one Philips screw. Cleaned all the contacts with electrical contact cleaner and lubricant and put it all back together. Installed it in the column and everything is working as it should!
Now for the guy that don't have the ability or know how to remove, disassemble and reassemble this item it can be found on eBay for 35 - 40 bucks. My self, I'm a cheep bast#$d and try to fix anything I can.
If you are going to try to remove and clean your switch there is a cap on the very end of the switch. Its hard to see where it comes apart but it does. It just pops apart. No screws or funny tabs. Use a small screwdriver. There is a screw inside there and it gets you to the contacts inside the lever that control the wipers.
Hope this helps out someone else. Good luck!
