Yellow Snot 3M trim adhesive. Reach in behind trim to clean both surfaces with a cleaning solvent and scratch pad. I think it comes in black now.
Probably will have to pull steering wheel to replace Turn Switch.
Verify the flasher is not the problem, or bad bulbs.
Speedo, all depends if in fact it is a cable.
Exhaust leak will require a stop at muffler shop to verify.
If it's just a minor set of bolts and gasket, might as well let them do it.
Google your area for parts stores.
Actually I prefer to use Yahoo Yellow pages using your zip code.
The results come back in the order of distance to your door.

Hello. Ok, I solved the problem with the exhaust leak. It was in fact the gasket. Muffler shop wanted $128 to fix it. I bought the part at NAPA for $7 and did it myself in about 30 minutes. I did a closer look at the turn signal/wiper/combination switch, and it looked like there were some relays or something screwed onto the switch. Everything works, the wipers, hi/lo beams, window washer. The turn signals and flashers work when they want to, sometimes they will work fine, other times, they will blink or flash for a couple of seconds and then stop. I have to 'wiggle' the signal lever or wiggle the flasher button to make them work. Long story short, would it be possible just to replace the relays or electronics on the turn signal without having to remove the switch? As for the speedometer cable, does anyone know where a person can get one besides a junkyard? I checked with a couple of Isuzu parts dealers, and they said this part(speedo cable) was backordered from Japan until at least May or so.
On a lighter note. As we all know the price of gas keeps on going up. I put a locking gas cap on, but I want to go a step further. I want to put a key lock on the fuel door. It don't look that difficult, just a matter of getting the right lock and drilling the right size hole. Not only would this add double security, but would also look professional as well. My only question about this would be is, what size of cylinder lock, and the length of the cam.

Where is the flasher located on a 87 Trooper? I am thinking that this is the cause of all the problems with the turn signals/flashers. I replaced the combination switch with a know good one, and it is doing the same thing, erratic function. sometimes they will work, sometimes they won't work. My next option is to change the bulbs and flasher. I just need to know where the flasher is located.
