Hi Folks,

Hope everyone is well. I have a question regarding the turn signal switch on my '74 Spider. It works fine. However, it's kinda "floppy." There's no tactile click to let me know it's engaged. Is that the way it is supposed to be or is something worn. Did a search. Couldn't find anything.

Thanks,

Joe G.
'74 Spider

Similar to mine. I wanna know also. I think it's going to involve removing it and repairs. I saw a YouTube video on taking it apart and fixing the stalk, so prob would be instructive. (Might have been on this forum.)

Every nation’s cars see to have their defining electrical nature.

England - off, dim, flicker
France - window down, half up, dead
Italy - Wipers slow, stopped, non retracting. PLUS two position turn signal: off and auto opposite.

Given the Alfa's unique turn signal cancelling mechanism, if the switch had a stiffer detent, the cancelling spring wouldn't be able to pull hard enough to un-trip it. So you could try putting a stronger spring behind the detent ball, but I think the switch would lose its ability to self-cancel.

And the pivot for the turn signal lever is just sloppy. Even when new.

Consider all this as just part of your Alfa's quirky personality.
