Stripping and cleaning the turn signal switch?

Anyone have a guide on how to do this? I have heard it is easy. I just don't want to **** it up. Any information on how to open it up is appreciated. Also my rear brake pedal barley moves. I am not to concerned about this seeing as the pedal is bent. I am just wondering if there is a better way to fix it besides paying Honda $100 for the pedal :(

Also I already tried electrical contact cleaner for the switch so please don't suggest that.

cheers

Just take it apart slowly. Only 4 screws total including the 2 that hold the housing together on the bar, then 2 holding wiring in place inside. I tried electrical cleaner and it helped for maybe a day. This time I went with white lithium grease after cleaning and its good as new a month later still.

It is sticky as hell. There is a bunch of gunk in it.

Yup they get sticky and feel notchy and gritty when using, and eventually stay stuck over the the side you pushed them. Very annoying.

Just spray a lil wd40 on the turn signal switch and flick it until it moves freely. Worked for me.

Does anyone have a picture of the inside of the switch? I took mine apart to clean it and didn't take any pictures as I was taking it apart. Now I can't figure out how to put it back together. I know it's simple, because as I took it apart, I was thinking to myself "Oh, this is easy, I don't need to take a picture or anything." But I can't for the life of me put the pieces back together how they're supposed to be. Is there a diagram of this somewhere? I googled it but all I can seem to find is complete replacement switches and tons of links about turn signal relays. Thanks in advance.

Does this help? If not worst case is I can take a picture of the inside of mine.

Unfortunately, no. I need the inside of the switch housing itself. There's one piece that I just cant figure out where to put it.

This is the piece I can't find a home for. The rest fits together really easily, but this one piece has me scratching my head.

I figured it out, and as expected, it was very simple. Here's a picture of it to hopefully help someone else in the future. Thanks for the help. Switch works like a dream now.
