[DML] Wiper switch boke while I had steering column out of the car

So a few months back I had the steering wheel/column out of my car.
The unthinkable happened when I put the thing back in.  I messed up
and allowed the wiper switch to hit something and this resulted in it
breaking away from the column.  The lever is still intact but the
metal inside of the column broke and now it is unable to firmly hold
the lever in place.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to repair this?  I tried to
glue the lever in with epoxy but it wasn't strong enough.  The washer
function still works when I press the lever in but I can't move the
lever up or down without it falling out.

I am planning to make a long drive next month and I am thinking about
hooking up a toggle switch directly to the wiring to turn the wipers
on as a backup/workaround until I figure out how to get the lever to
stay in there.  Does anyone know if I can tap into any wires under the
console?  Thanks everyone.
