Broken Turn Signal Lock

I have a '76 300D w115 that is new to me and the turn signal auto lock has always been broken and I'm not sure how to fix it.

What do you mean by the "turn signal auto lock?"

Are you talking about the auto canceling feature, where the stalk is returned to the "Off" position when the steering wheel goes back to center?

Indeed, or do you mean that when you turn the signal on (left or right) that it won't stay engaged until you make the turn? That is quite common on that model.

I mean that the turn signal will not stay set. I have to hold it on.

Exactly what I described.

As mentioned in the previous thread, you'll need to gently file down the detents to get the self canceling function to work.
