Just wondering if anyone else has had this issue before. My wife's '00 Legacy L wagon's left turn signal is acting flaky. I finally figured out last night what the specific symptoms are:

* If you sort of "hit" it down with a little force it won't signal, just click 2X more rapidly than it should and no dash or exterior lights.

* If you've already hit it down with a little force, you can lightly jiggle it up and the left turn signal will work just fine.

* If you push it down without much force it works just fine.

Obviously, some connection isn't being made right or after years of perhaps hitting the signal arm a little too hard my wife has worn the connection a bit? I've got a repair manual for the '90-'98 Legacy and some stuff applies but just wondering if anyone's dealt with this issue before and tried to fix it by pulling the signal arm out or partially dismantling the steering column to get at it.

This just happened to my left turn signal on my 00 Legacy GT last week for the first time. At first, I thought there was a bulb out and that's why the fast signal but next time it worked properly??:-\
