PostSubject: Steering column help   Mon Jul 08, 2013 11:01 pm

Since I have ZERO headlights now, and my car will be stuck at work until sunrise, I started taking the plastic covers off the turn signal area.

Once off, a strange looking plastic piece looked as if we're floating around inside, but wasn't hooked up to anything. It came right out.

There's a rod there that bends and goes into the underside of the column. Not sure what that goes to.

Also, it looks like there's 2 contacts underneath. 1 possibly engaged by the stalk lever, which is now inop. The contact is pushed all the way in and I can't get it out.

Any help with how this all functions and goes back together?

You're probably right, Nick.

Any idea how all of it goes back together?

I'm not 100% on it as it looked like that plastic piece is rather broken or was out of place to begin with.

This might help, more than you'll ever need to know about a saginaw column:

Wow, I wish I had that guide last year when I attempted to rebuild my sloppy column! My results were less than optimal and I just ended up buying a rebuild column instead.

Hope it helps, it was a life saver when I tore apart my Caddy's column. Once that high beam switch falls out it's hard to figure out where those pieces go.
