<VV> turn signal switch

There is a methodical way to approach this. If the connectors under the  
dash prove to be adequate, you will have to remove the steering wheel and the  
turn signal actuator - That is the big "C" shaped piece the arm screws  
onto. To do that you will have to drop down the outer housing. After the  
actuator is removed, you will see how the switch works. There is no normal "wear  
point" what happens is one of the connector springs either fails - 
electrically  or mechanically - or enough corrosion occurs to isolate one of the 
connections.  Before you remove anything or try to fix anything, compare your 
contacts to the  photo in Matts e-mail. It doesn't take much to interfere or 
tweak with a  contact in here. If you want to check all the other 
connections, try  feeding 12 volts to the RR pin, and see if the that turn signal 
lights. If you  remove the spring loaded piece, try not to bend it too much, 
otherwise it will  probably cause other issues, like some lights sticking on. 
Be gentle.

When I open  it up, do I put the testers on Willy nilly or do I gently 
touch the metal  tongs to each other?
