Part deux

6. The little pin rides in these plastic slots on the push button piece. These were worn so that the switch wouldn't latch in the off position.
7. A plastic shim inserted behind the pin arm made it ride a bit deeper in the plastic grooves.

M first shim wasn't quite thick enough so I used a slightly thicker piece. I should have measured the thickness, but I think it is a seat of the pants deal. My shim came from the tab on one of those terminal covers from a new battery. I reassembled the switch it worked like a champ. This saved me about $80, and since the hazard lights will be used rarely on any Alfa, will last a long time. Did you remember to keep track of the wire connections?
Hope this helps someone.
