    Anyone know where I can find a new turn signal handle for my 80 Volare?
    A plastic bit broke on mine so I cannot turn on my wipers.
    I can take pictures later tonight if that helps.

    Thanks!

    Here are some pictures of the broken part. I am worried if I get another plastic part like this it could easily break again?
    The turn signal seems kind of "sticky" and hard to snap into left/right turn positions. I am wondering if I need to replace the switch as well. Thanks!

    He needs the sleeve, I have a cruise control one, but the non-cruise ones seem to brake all the time. 80s front drive cars used the same piece, my 87 Shadow was broken and I got one off an 80 Volare while working in a salvage yard

    switch cover OEM #s below for 1980

    3747744 used w/o tilt or cruise one here: http://www.dpmotorparts.com/list_parts.cfm?page=306
    3747745 used/tilt no info on google


    those parts are a real problem on the FWD and RWD cars as they break when somebody farts 3 feet away

    Seems like these plastic ones are super fragile. I am thinking of just making a custom metal one. I just talked to a machinist buddy who has a lathe.
