Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

this is kind of a faq item... Zig's nice photos of the insides are a good step by step. Only comment I'd make: if you want a really clean + professional end result, my tip to avoid cracking the plastic is only drill the "rivets" just barely deep enough for them to let go of the plastic, pull the cover off carefully, then dremel off the remaining posts (the rivets are part of the casting actually), then mark (from the cover holes), drill for 2-56. Countersink the plastic cover + use flathead 2-56 screws (3/8" long iirc). They will self tap. The assembly will be forever repairable + as good as new (mine pretty much look like they came that way from the factory + it's easy, but I butchered the first one I did by trying to drill too deep). I'll see if I have a photo to post...

My 1993 has a non-cruise signal in place of what was a cruise stalk. works perfectly. non-cruise is lighter + (in principle) wears the track more slowly.
