Headlight Turn Switch fix

Cars that have their headlight switch on the same lever as the turn signal switch become loose as they become old.  In this situation, you could accidentally switch off your headlights at night when signalling left or right turn.  Replacing the entire headlight turn signal switch assembly could cost anywhere from $50.00 and above, depending on the car make.

To avoid those costs, I fixed a thin strip of stainless steel at the non-rotating part of the lever extending about half an inch above the rotating switch.  On the rotating switch, I formed a flattened sheet that holds umbrella wire frames into a ribbed aluminum band and used superglue to bond it.  With that, the headlight switch fix now turns accordingly as it used to switch on the headlights.
