I wrote how to fix the switch many years ago and it is in the second tech-guide.  You remove the switch.  Use a small punch and hammer to uncrimp where it as crimped. Use a pencil eraser to clean the contacts including the case where in brass contacts it.  A little white grease on the shaft.  Reassemble and recrimp. The crimp has to be tight enough so the brass makes good contact to the case.

Resurrecting a car that has been sitting for a while. The multi-speed wipers don’t work; however if I do the washer (push knob) itwipes only while the knob is pushed in.  Anybody have a recommendationabout what is the likely culprit and/or how to repair?
