DIY Fixing Loose Turn Signal Switch

I asked for help but no one was willing so I guess I had to help myself. Here's to all the clueless tinkerers who have the same issue.

My turn signal switch had been a little sticky a little funky but still functioning. One day it suddenly went loose it flips left and ride as if attached to nothing. Here is how to fix that (yes I realize it is probably obvious but just a little fyi if you are clueless like me).

Step 1. Remove the 2 screws holding the housing together. Note the location of the 3rd hole on the bottom, when reassembling do not try to stick the screw in there! Hole 1 is the shorter screw and hole 2 is the longer screw. I was able to twist the housing in this position for easier access, though I don't know if it is supposed to do that.

Step 2. Sorry for blurry image, for me this screw was completely out of the thread. You can tighten it here and be done. Remember to keep the paddle part of the switch under the surface labeled 2.

Step 3. Reassemble making sure the collar is attached at the right location.

Extra 1. Here is the switch taken out. Note the red arrow pointing to the metal this is what engages the turn signal. There are two washers sandwitching the switch. I don't think it matters which goes on top or bottom, I had dropped my silver washer and had to get an replacement from Home depot which was an M4 flat washer that got the job done. I installed it with the gold washer on the bottom and the silver one on top.

Extra 2. When making the first thread about this issue my sleep deprived mind thought that the switch goes side to side with the neutral in the middle. I was wondering why it was not working then realized that the neutral is the switch pressing in. Here is a gif of it in action.
