Refurbishing Indicator Stalks
Just thought I would share some good news!
I bought some worn indicator stalks for the my GTV from a breakers and thought I would have a bash at fixing the self cancelling mechanism.
After numerous failed attempts and false starts I have cracked it, the refurbished one have been fitted for 3 weeks now and are still performing perfectly.
For those that don't know the reason they fail is the two lugs that the plastic collar contacts with wear over time and then there isnt enough 'bite'.
I filed the lugs down and fashioned two thin metal strips and bonded them on thereby increasing the contact area. Should be a permanent fix as all the pressure is against the bond so should be sound.
Will post pics up later, I am now going to refurbish the worn ones I took off my car and stick them on ebay....
