Fix dimmer switch?

I just put in a turn signal switch I got on ebay, to fix my high beam problem. Basically, the high beams would not go on, though they would flash if I pulled the stalk toward me. Now, I have the opposite problem; the highs are always on; it seems this switch is very sensitive, if you hit a bump, it toggles the brights on. Has anybody ever fixed this situation? I can't figure out how to open the switch to figure it out (like I did my flasher relay for example). I really don't want to buy a brand new one ($100 or so) if I don't have to...

THANKS!

position is either weak or broken. E-mail me offline and I'll look at a spare one I have tonite and see if I can spot something that might be wrong...

cheers

. . . you might learn enough to fix the eBay switch. Combine parts to make one good switch. I took one apart awhile back but the nylon plastic part was in pieces, which = junk switch.

... coincidentally, I thought of the same thing. Basically I drilled out the two metal studs that appear to hold the whole thing together. It's dirty, but nothing appears broken. I'm going to try to clean it up really well, then epoxy it back together or maybe some small screws. Pretty amazing they get $100 out of these things; there really isn't much to it. Also, it would be better if it wasn't more or less permanently sealed!

THANKS

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
