Multifunction switch

Hello Robert:
I'm sorry to tell tell you but the dimmer switch is integral to the multifunction switch.  The lever for the turn signal and high beams are all one switch and it needs to be replaced as a complete assembly  I have attached a photo of the part.  The sorry part comes, because the switch sells for over $560 retail.  It's an easy replacement, but a costly one.  Our company sells the instructions for how to replace it step-by-step here

Good luck
