Questions on locks and combination switches

Greetings fellow car masochists. So I have been down the path of restoring this 93' R1 for a few months now and I think I have most of the "major" problems licked. Got my car back from my mechanic and discovered a couple of new Gremlins:

First my door locks do not seem to function properly. I can lock the car doors with the key but I cannot unlock the doors. I have bought new door handles and shutter rebuild kits from members here so when I take everything apart is there something I can do to try and fix this? If not I assume buying a whole new master set of locks would be required.

Second my combination switch does not seem to hold my indicator up or down very well. I looked at replacement but they are over $400 brand new so I'd prefer to fix if there is a common issue that can be repaired.

Before anyone says do a search I have, and I have read everything that I can. Before making large purchases I prefer double checking my findings in case anything new has developed so thank you in advance for any advice.

I dunno how you were searching, but I usually just type into google instead of going through the forums. Seems much better. You're welcome

On the turn signals, the FD's turn signals are typically pretty hardy. I would get a low mileage used set and be good to go.

Note that there are different versions - RHD/LHD are different, and cars with rear wipers have the rear wiper control on the stalk.

Thank you for the advice. Due to timing I do not know if I will be able to source a used unit prior to finishing the interior. I'll post a wanted ad and see what stirs.

You can really swap that out at any time, the hardest part is taking the steering wheel off. You can easily come back to that and do it later.
