Was going to wait and do this tomorrow, but not really tired, so it got done tonight. The OG turn signal switch had seen better days. The plastic pieces had started to disintegrate years ago. I ordered a replacement from CIP1 last week because their having a huge sale the whole month of March. Pleased with the price, pleased with the quality. As you can see in the first pic above, it was certainly time to replace the switch. The new switch can be used in other VWs besides the Beetle, so not all of the wires will be used. You can cut out the ones you wont use, making it easier to get the wires through the steering column. Then its just a matter of splicing everything together. All of the wires are color coded, so its hard to get them wrong. I soldered all of my connections to ensure good contact. Put everything back together, then tested,works like a charm!
