Default Steering Column

Guys, I am lookin in the FSM but I can't find where it tells how to install a new multi function stalk/arm thing. My washer switch is cracked and also i think my cruise problem might be caused by a bad switch, and it needs replacing anyways. Only problem is, I really don't know how much of a PITA this thing will be to install!!!

Here is what I need to get...for a pretty good price. I have basically narrowed it down to the rake sensor, the control switch or the actual CCM, which I still cannot locate.

Thanks Guys.

John..

The lever itelf is cracked? They are replacable if that'* the case.

The Cruise control is a switch on that same lever and uses an electrical connection.

You shouldn't need to replace the multifunction switch if this is only the lever, the multi..is where the lever pushes into...

well like i showed you i dont mean the switch, i mean the stalk deal. with just the Cruise wires coming out of it

i was just out there and that where that stalk goes into the switch assembly looks like a pita.

i did find the CCM, but its up under the hush panel...

i hate those stupid panels...

well anways, the CCM would be EASIER to replace but is $80...the stalk is only 30...so i mean i dunno what to do, but if it is neither of those it is the brake switch..and that is $127!!!!!
