'83 left/right turn signal switch pictures

I'm looking for a picture of a dissembled '83 R80st turn signal switch.

I'm trying to open one but does not know where to start.

Thank you for the reply,

You probably won't see this time the plastic is old and brittle so when you try to take it apart, you have little springs and parts flying around and no home when you try to reassemble.

Best to score a good used one or go new.

Take the knob off the indicator switch first.
The high beam sort of slides around the cover.
It is a bit of a struggle to get the indicator stem out of the slot and the highbeam switch to pop at the same time.
Do not force treat it like a cheap rubiks cube.
Disassemble inside a plastic bag for contaimant.
There is not much inside you can address unless there is another switch lying arouind with different broken parts.
