S3 Indicator L/H Stalk needs replacing

Recommended Posts

Hi, been having problems with the indicators intermittently not working properly on my '87 N/A S3.

 

Have taken the s/wheel shroud off and cleaned the contacts etc and given it a good wiggle! can't get it to work, has happened before and now the headlights have packed up. (pods raise and beams works) Think the lights go through the arm connections too. Fuses seem fine.

 

Think need to replace the stalk, anyone got a spare I can buy from them? SJ Sportscars have them for £79.00 but would like cheaper if possible or is the stalk from another car manufacturer I can get it from?

 

Thanks

Land Rover Series 3 looks close £13.98 on Ebay :thumbup:

It's close but the stalk needs bending slightly to match the kink in the Lotus one.

Thought these came from a landrover anyway - no?

You can bend it, just need to be careful. There is an old thread on here somewhere but I couldn't find it immediately where someone has done the job.

Thanks for the suggestions, took it apart and this is the actual stalk.

 

Having had a wiggle! indicators now working however headlights still not, main beams inc all four headlights, sidelights all work. Think may be headlight relay as pods rise but no headlights coming on.

 

Any idea which one it is and where, also a part number so I can replace it.

 

Thanks

I always thought they were mini stalks.

 

Mine are straight and the other way around. Indicators on the right, wipers in the left.

Mine are both for here and here

 

 

Yours looks like it is this one - straightish stalk though.

Mine looks like the one in sizona's post so I guess must have changed during the S3 production

My brother use to own a '78 Ford fiesta... I was young at that time but seem to remember it looked pretty much like what I have on mine, it had the horn on the end and similar writing on it. Don't know about the bend though.
