Loose Switch

My Turn Signal/Wiper/Head Light dimmer switch has a lot of play in it. But it is stiff when going from high beams to low beams. I checked with NAPA about replacement parts. They show 3 separate parts for it. 1) the stem 2) internal guts 3) switch inside the column. Which part do I change ?

BUMP!
I am about to replace the turn signal switch (blinkers only work some of the time) and the turn signal canceling cam (b/c it's only another $7) inside the column. Is there anything else that will take up the end play of the turn signal lever, or will the new-ness of the switch and cam do that? I've seen a few exploded parts diagrams and some step-by-step disassembly pictures, but nothing that will specifically say what will take the slop out of the turn signal.

I fixed mine by replacing the WIPER switch. This switch is was stabilizes the stem. Works like a charm and is about a $25 part.

I know you hafta have some type of tool, or you can make one with a flat bar, hole through it and a nut to compress one of the internal parts so you can remove a snap/lock ring (whichever you prefer to call it) There's a really good post on here somewhere that detals how to disassemble a steering column. It's a tilt column, but for our purposes, we don't hafta go as deep as his tutorial.
