Turn signal, high beam, wiper shaft loose

I have a 1997 E300. The turn signal lever has gotten loose. I can't tell if something broke inside or it popped out of a socket. It pulls out slightly and the high beams are activated when the lever is pulled up or down for turn signaling. Does anyone have a diagram of how the shaft connects inside?

It is pretty difficult to see how it connects. Does anyone have experience correcting this problem. I would sure like to avoid pulling the whole wheel off if possible.

I have no problem with the cruise control shaft so the collar on the steering column is fine. The problem is where the turn signal lever attaches inside the column.

Thanks for your help.

My guess is that you broke the switch in a particularly aggressive blinker activation.
