Turn Signal switch housing

Stupid question but I have been fighting with this turn signal switch housing for a while now and I can't seem to get it back on. Anyone have any tips?

They can be a little fussy sometimes. Here's a thread I did a while back when I was working on my column:

Be patient, you'll get it.

Re: Turn Signal switch housing

So I guess I lied. The housing will not go down all the way as you can see in the picture. Also I can turn the housing by hand with everything installed and the shift indicator is way off. Any idea on what I can or should do to get this correct. I have been at this for two days now and its pretty frustrating as this should be a pretty straight forward job. Any help is appreciated.

Re: Turn Signal switch housing

Looks like the rubber spacer is causing it to sit uneven for some reason.

Re: Turn Signal switch housing

In your first picture you can see the rubber cone shaped washer, it's sitting out too far, it rests on a white plastic washer that has an outside key way, I bet the plastic washer is not located in the outer column slot.
Which I assume prevented engagement of all 3 tangs on the turn signal switch cover to the outer column.
