Turn signal

This is a turn signal lever question. I just purchased a 94. I've never so much as sat in a Land Rover before this purchase. When I move the turn signal lever to make a right turn (upward), the turn signal lever won't lock in place, so, to keep the right turn signal flashing, I must hold the turn signal lever upward or in place. The left turn signal position (downward) locks and works fine. Any suggestions? Daryl Scott

Welcome Daryl! Yes it should lock in, you may need to replace it but it is pretty easy to get at to see if something is caught up in it. There are 4 screws holding in the bottom of the steering column, if you remove them you can take the top and bottom half's apart to get a look. DAP, Roversnoth, Northeast British parts or Atlantic British should have the switch if you need it.

that part will cost you over $150 plus shipping if you buy it from Rovers North, or Atlantic British. I just replaced mine and I sourced it from the UK and it cost me $47 US delivered. Check e-bay, you might even find one cheaper that that.

I found that when mine was stuck like that it was just that the little piece which locks into place to hold up the turn signal was slightly worn/bent so that it wouldn't catch. I bent mine a bit and it has worked ever since.

If you don't find one on Ebay, Rovers Down South might have one cheaper than Rovers North.
