The windshield wiper switch on my 75 is hard to move -- almost impossible to push it to the Low position without it going right to the Hi position,  I have had 3 or 4 switches in this car and they are all about the same.  Is this typical of these switches, or is there something I can do for it?

Can't say that I have ever run into one that was "hard" to move from one position to another. Best suggestion I have would be to maybe try to spray a little WD40 into it and work it back/forth, or maybe make sure the switch is not being bound up when you screw it to the dash panel? Are they all hard to manipulate OUT of the dash also?
