Steering Column Repair/BLINKER HANDLE

Question
the handle got broken off my 90 model S10 blazer .is there any way of getting whats left out of the switch without removing the assembly

Answer
Hi Jimmy:

The short answer is no.  The broken stem of the lever is inside the wiper switch and you do not want to damage the switch attempting to 'dig it out'.  The best way is to remove the upper components and lock cover so you can get behind the end of the stem and push it out of the switch.  
Sorry, but I hope this helps
