My 1987 has an issue with the high beam. I can turn it on but to turn it off I have to go through my left and right turn signal before I turn it off. Same with turning it on. Is the switch for the two part of the same assembly?
I'll take a look at the pivot pin and I heard there is a screw that can come loose that if tightened can help the problem sometimes. I also heard that if I do have to replace the switch, it's kind of a pain. It was recommended that I actually cut the wires of the new switch and feed through the column and reattach them after feeding through rather than disassemble the whole column.
DO NOT cut and splice any wires in the steering column even good splices can fail causing a whole lot of bad things to happen (shorts and fire). Take the time and disassemble as necessary and do the job the right way not the hack way. I just changed out the turn signal switch and the wiper switch in less than an hour. If you take the upper column bracket off and the plastic conduit the wires run in its a snap.
