Hi, Mi right turning signal keeps failing from time to time, annoying and possibly hazardous. I've had some occasional claxon concertos, turning right unsignalled. The strange part is, it doens't always fail , the first 3 to 5 times from cold start, it's okay, after that it's more or less over, an occasional lucky shot excepted. So bolbs and relais should be okay, the problem could be in the switch itself. Today I went over to the shop, they said they needed to replace the whole thing. According to the guy the part costs 180 EURO new, luckily they had a junker in the back yard, also fitted with Cruise, and I could have that part for half the new price, so 90 EURO. I guess together with labour cost's I'll pay about 110 to 125 to have it replaced. I could also scout around some junkyards and try to replace it myself. Anyone know how hard to replace that thingy is? I'm no mechanic, so when need to remove steering wheel/Airbag and such vital parts, I'm not even gonna bother. If it's just removing some screws and plastic cover, I might give it a go. Any indication what that part should cost from a breaker? K.R., Nel
