Wiper switch malfunction

Post by G-Mar on Mon May 09, 2011 3:10 pm

The other day I went to turn the wipers off on my '68 and the middle part of the switch fell off in my hand. I had to disconnect the wiring to get the wipers to turn off. Whats the best method of fixing this?
Any help, tricks, or tips would be greatly welcomed.

Did the knob and shaft just fall off or what? Got any pics?

No pics but the part has a long thin plastic shaft that looks ad if it extends into the electronic switch. Not sure if this helps or not.
Do you know of a complete rebuild kit for a wiper assembly?

Usually the center is just a button that you push to pump the windshield wiper fluid through the nozzle....shouldn't have affected you turning on and off the wipers

but here is a new switch
