    Default XM (Zantia maybe?) Blinker stalk

    Hi,
    I thought I had a spare but it is off an earlier model. Has any one got a blinker stalk that has the horn and headlight control on it - mine has melted.

    Let me guess... it still "sort of" works but you have to hold it on ...? It can be repaired quite easily ... pop it apart and take a look. I think and had both a Xantia and an XM one do the smoke trick. It's a quick simple fix with a smear of araldite.

    PS - mine doesn't move at all so, I hope other drivers can remember the old hand signals (they probably don't teach them anymore)

    It'll probably still work in one direction ... or hold it in the direction you want. being a late 24valve XM possibly it's different. It sounds like the same problem though



    found a piccie ... .see the plastic bit in the middle of the contact strip. This is what melted/smoked. As it now has a melted bit the slide contact jamns in it and the lever will no longer move. All you do is dob some araldite there to build up the plastic bit shown, and it'll be better than new.

    As Shane says, a bit of araldite to build up the plastic part.
    Did it to my xm years ago when the switch was sticking a bit, never missed a beat since

    I've seen some stalks physically worn out in the brass bits, hopefully the part I referred our man to is the correct one.
