How do I replace wiper switch 1987 Chevy

Customer Question

How do I replace wiper switch 1987 Chevy

Hello & Welcome back,

 

Can you tell me the Model of your vehicle?

 

Thanks

Customer: replied 8 years ago.
I think it is a 1987 El Camino or S-10, if they were made back then. I just have the column and I want the wiper switch. I have removed the steering wheel and the torx bolts to the cover plate, but can't get the shifter lever housing off. It is an Automatic. I have removed the key switch and both tilt and turn levers. I can't find what is holding the housing on so I can get to the switch.

Hi again,

 

Let me send you the procedure for replacing the switch for the 87 El Camino so that you can see if they match what you have. If not, I will see what I have on the S10. I am assuming this is the same switch for the wipers too (the Multifunction Switch).

Please let me know if these look correct for what you have, or if I should try the S10.

 

Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX

I have removed everything but the housing of the turn switch and ignition switch. There seems to be something holding it on and I cannot find what it is.

Hi again,

 

Let's try the 87 S10 instructions. Maybe there is something in there that is missing in the other instructions.

OK - That is all I can find on this. I will open this question back up to see if another expert can help you.
