Indicator Turn Signal Not Returning

So, you finally stop at the lights and the guy in the next car informs you that you've been indicating left since...Oh my days! Newcastle! How embarrassing is that?

We've all been there. It really is a slur against your driving ability. A black mark. It brings your very masculinity into question.

Ok, so maybe that's a little heavy but either way 'tis not good. And it's worse still when it's not even your own stupid fault.
Many Citroens and Peugeots are making fools of their owners due to faulty self cancel mechanisms. The main offenders are those fitted with the COM2000 type indicator stalk setup. You know the one, you need a mortgage when they need replacing. Well, it appears that the culprit is just a naff little spring that loses it's tension, becomes weak and doesn't have the energy to return the little widget. Now I'm not going to recommend y'all start ripping two hundred quids worth of switchgear apart, but if you are a bit handy, have nerves of steel and a good eye, it may be worth a bash.
Stretch the return springs a little to give it a touch more oomph. Don't go mad because the sucker won't work at all if it's too tight.

Now, if anyone asks, you've not seen me...right?

Switches galore
