Are you 100% sure that the swicthes are cactus?

Have you checked that the nylon bushes in the motor arent crushed inside ? (3 per motor)




Things can get VERY messy in there.

My P.R. Manager is right unfortunately I cant help at this time
Power window switches are pretty rare so I don't have a spare set to play with to learn, unlike the other stuff I am currently refurbishing, but thanks for asking
cheers

Hi Tony, Do you repair the internal electrics of the indicator stalks during the restoration process?

[QUOTE=Flogginit;4895212]Hi Tony, Do you repair the internal electrics of the indicator stalks during the restoration process?[/

Not normally but I have done repairs on ones that don't cancel or horn not working
It really depends on what's wrong with it

They are supposed to be a non serviceable unit but as good parts in working order are statring to get harder to find I have had to find ways of fixing stuff that you would normally throw away and replace

I have the usual issues with mine Horn just stopped and High beam doesnt work when you pull it towards you. Indicator cancels fine though which is the first thing that goes. Might try and find a better one though and send it to you for refurb.

Contact Luke GT on the forum
he has them available
In fact I was as his shop today and he has a very good XC unit on the shelf
So purchase it through him , then if you want it restored to NOS condition I can pick it up and send it on to you when its done (we have done stuff like this for a few forum members before )
if you don't want it cosmetically restored that's ok just get him to post it to you
