assuming that my local JY can provide me with a master wiper switch for a 94 legacy wgn, how hard will the install be? i'll need to open up the steering column, and pull off the steering wheel, but what else after that point? is the switch on a wiring harness? whats involved w/ pulling the steering wheel with regards to the airbag? has anyone out there ever done this before?

thanks in advance

I don't think it's necessary to pull the steering wheel. The switch assembly is attached by means of two screws. It will all become clear after you have removed the steering column covers.

On gen. 1 and 2 Legacy, it looks like the switch slides out in the direction parallel to the steering column, towards the front of the car. The screws are accessible, but doesn't the mounting bracket for the switch housing get in the way?
