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

I had a similar problem my wiper pushbutton does not spring back when you push the washer button on the end but it moves up and down, though. That's the result of my 3 year old getting in the car w/o my knowledge.

Anyway buy a new one from Houston
Like $109 I think?
