Assistance with replacing turn signal switch?

I've got a ~91 Thomas school bus with a broken turn signal switch. The turn signals themselves work (the switch was "barely" working until the other day), and today I opened up the housing to take a look and found a little pin broken inside.


Not sure if that's what needs replacing, but from moving the bar back and forth, that pin is supposed to be rotating and isn't.

Yes, you replace the entire combo switch. I,m presuming your bus has a ford chassis cause that is a ford switch in the picture. Find the part number on the switch, you can get it from any parts store.

Thomas makes the body. Who makes the chassis. Most likely you will have to go thru them for the turn signal switch.

A pic of the bus would help a lot.

If you have an information plate or plates inside the bus, a photo of that would be of interest as well.

Solved. It was an International part, and it was a simple plug n go affair, with the exception of the handle itself, which I'm reusing from the previous one (after having removed it by force).
