Loose turn signal lever on 98 Saturn SL2

How do I tighten a loose turn signal lever on my 98 Saturn SL-2? The whole mechanism (including wiper switch, ignition, etc.) rotates about an inch when I use the signal, which is also very clunky compared to other cars I've owned.

You will have to buy a used or new multi-function switch and have it installed. Used they are cheap on ebay, new you will get screwed by a dealer. I would not pull the steering wheel and do the replacement myself unless I was an experienced mechanic, you can really screw up your airbag. There is a sort of discount Saturn parts dealer in MD, that is where I get my new Saturn parts. Their website is getsaturnparts.net or something like that. Google it.

I have a 1999 sl2 saturn and i need to know why the motor on the windshield wipers dont stop and go the other way so on and so forth


The motor continuously turns, it doesn't stop and back up. If your wipers got iced or stuck, they may have loosened the pivot nuts. Lift both wiper arms up off of the windsheild and then see if the wipers move correctly. If they do, shut off the wipers to let them "park." Loosen the nuts under the plastic cap at the base of the wiper arm, and set each arm to the park position, and then tighten the nut. These are made to slip so the motor doesn't get destroyed.

The passenger side wiper on my 98 Saturn SL doesn't operate


Check the spline nut that is at the base of the wiper. It is under little plastic flap at the base of the wiper. Flip it open and tighten the nut down and make sure both wipers are in the down position when you do it.

Passenger side wiper slipping or not moving intermittenly


looks as though the nut that holds it may have come loose try tightening it , if it still slips remove it to see if the wiper arm is stripped. if it is ok u should see gear like teeth in the hole.

My 98 saturn sl2 is very hard on reverse. if the engine just started, it reverse slightly. but as the engine gets warm the reverse is not working. help please.


could be 3 things
if you have reverse but a bad delay into reverse it could be a loose input shaft nut in the trans,and or a bad valve body
if you have no reverse you got a torn seal in the trans but if you have a torn seal you will have no second gear as well as they share this seal,,,i would take it to the saturn dealer as trans shop have no idea how to fix these,like cottman and them have no idea,,take it to saturn
