Turn signals not cancelling, missing part?

Flush with the success of fixing my intermittent dash blinder indicator, I turned to the issue of the non-cancelling turn signal. Scanning the archives it seems to be straight forward, a little ring with a nubbing as it rotates should trip the turn signal. With my right side stalk, it should be at 3 o'clock.

Sounds easy, so lets rip the covers off. And this is what I find. I see the little lever from the turn signal switch, but no ring as described. Just a coiled spring on the shaft. Can't really find a good picture or diagram of it. The PO put a Momo wheel on . Could he have sacrificed the ring as part of the Momo conversion?

Here's a pic. Can the missing piece (or more) be reattached? And can somebody point me to the part number? Thanks again.

- should be found pressed into the steering wheel.

What do you need that luxury for anyway? With a little practice an alert pilot can get good at manually canceling the blinkers.

Ah, I'm a racer and we're used to dealing with broken and ill-handling cars. No 3rd gear, no problem. No brakes, just pump them and turn anyway. Within 5 minutes of owning the bimmer I was unconsiously turning the wheel, removing right hand to cancel blinkers, dropping hand to gear lever, double clutching to avoid the bad 2nd gear synchro and going down the road.

But my racecar is just a tool to get the job done. The '02 is my hobby and I want to fix the bad things. It's a sickness that a lot of us seem to share.

BTW, I know you were just kidding me :)

That brings power to the horn button.

I think you need 32 32 1 118 825.

Ah, that makes more sense. It's buried down below the spring and the little piece sticks out and flips the lever. That looks like the part. Thanks Scott.
