Anyone else have a problem with the left branch off the steering column that switches low beam to hi beam, not staying in low beam position? Mine wants to "fall" forward into hi beams.

I don't, but IIRC there is a spring and detent ball involved. It might be repairable.

It will click into place, but the slightest bump knocks it out. I probably shouldn't drive that thing at night anyway spinning smiley sticking its tongue out

Night drives in the summer with cool air are my favorite.

The cars are so low most drivers won't notice the high beams ... especially if they are the old incandescent ones.

not a good idea to be driving around, flashing your brights at people unintentionally, even if you think you won't bother them (trust that you WILL)

Get your lever fixed, they sell new ones at Moss, or if you don't need high beams because you don't drive at night, then unplug them to be sure (blue/white wire in front of the RH wheel).
