Sloppy turn signal stick

The turn signal switch on my 92 yj is extremely sloppy and has tons of play in it. To get the signal to engage it takes a good amount of force to get it to click in. My question is, does every yj do this or is there a fix?

the pivot arm that goes to the directional switch is loose, or where it mounts to the switch is cracked.remove the steering wheel and lock plate to gain access

Yep, my turn signal stick/switch has a lot of play as well (92 YJ), it too does take a little more force to click on, but I wouldn't say its excessive.

mine got so bad, that I actually broke the controller arm for it. now I dont have access to my wiper blades or my turn signals. anyone know where I can pick up the whole thing? need pretty much the turn signal switch, the wiper switch and the turn signal/wiper arm switch.

louisiana is pretty hard to find a salvage jeep with things like that. if i could buy it new i'd prefer it...just not through the dealership since they want almost 300 bucks for all of it.

I picked up a gm steering column, from Craig's list. It was out of an astro van I Think. I believe most gm columns around that year are about the same. I had to replace the bearings inside. No one carried that part.
