    '78 Honda Civic -- temperamental direction signals

    My '78 Honda Civic (1200) has developed temperamental direction
    signals, and I
    am at a loss how to cure it. Sometimes they work normally, but then
    stop. Then resume.
    Then stop again. Completely unpredictably. It seems that sometimes
    quickly flicking the signal lever back and forth would restore the
    operation, but this may be an illusion. I think I've located the
    switching mechanism in the console a bit to the left of the manual
    choke knob. (This car has a manual choke!) With two fingers from
    below, I can feel it vibrating when it works. Do I have to remove the
    console to access the unit or can the repair be done from below? The
    Honda repair manual has no suggestions.
    Sometimes I have to open the window (at 20 degrees F) to give a manual
    direction signal.
    Thanks for any help with hints and/or referrals.

    I remember changing the direction signal switch in a Pinto by
    unplugging the old clicker and replacing it with a new one. It was
    easily accessible.
