The combination handle slips into a hole on the switch, unless it either was not made onto the switch plate or it was not transferred or the wrong part.

The turn signal lever goes into the wiper switch, witch connects to the turn sig
switch with a "Y" shaped metal tha screws on. Look on the floor, under seat etc,

Are you talking about the switch in the column??? The 93 had a relay and switch.

The metal arm is stuck inside your cruise lever. It shouldn't/can't really fall out. If you need help snap a picture and clarify what you are working on, because the dimmer, delay switch and all those are on the stick but has nothing to do with the operation of the switch.

i forget what this piece does, but im just seeing if its what you're talking about




this piece is what activates the high beams, it rides on a piece of plastic that is in the last picture



the turnsignal switch just plugs into the hole in the next pic



you push it in, then turn it, and it pops in place


ok, the piece that the high beam switch hits is almost exactly centered in the picture, if you take a look at the red wire, you can see the connector where it holds onto the wire, you can see a piece of plastic directly next to it, and then another one next to that, that is the piece the 'y' shaped thing presses onto to activate the highs




i hope this helped

The top picture guides the metal rod that activates the turn signals. If you are missin a metal rod it should be in some way, shape or form around the bracket in the first picture. I am pretty sure it has a tab on it that would be pretty difficult to have fall out and if you don't have this it would be the reason your signals never worked. Unfortunately that part can only be obtained at the junk yard.
