On my Elan S3 LH-1967, I have to replace: the combined wiper / washer pump switch (original? I don't know!)
Which model would be the right one, the choice and its reference Lucas

To order parts, I have contacted Miss Miller since the beginning of the year !, But I have not received any response! If you share a direct contact, if you can ask her to check my emails which are open. (I live in France)
thank you for helping me

Hi Gerard,
My 1967 S3 has a rotary switch to start the wipers and further rotation increases the speed. Pressing it in operates the pump. It is a ford part and was fitted to the Corsair and others.
They are usually considered unobtainable so I do not think Sue Miller will be able to help.
I put it on permanent watch on ebay and found one after a few years.
They do turn up, best of luck.
For me a phone call works better with Sue.

If I remember correctly, I was able to adapt a 1970-79 Triumph GT6 windshield washer pump/switch to fit the one on my S3 Elan. I got it from http;//bpnorthwest.com

Here is an expired ebay listing with some information on what I think may be the rotary switch part. The pump part shows up pretty often but I think there may be a screw thread issue to be sure of in order to join them together.

Because, shortly the ebay listing will no longer be accessable, here's the listing title to preserve the
part number, and a picture of the part.

I agree with Eric, the original parts are not obtainable new. My S3 was missing the washer pump part of the switch, but did have the switch, but had a bolt inserted in the rear to prevent the unit from being depressed (pumped). The switch worked as it should and an aftermarket electric pump had been installed.

I managed to get a complete used replacement off e-bay, as well as some spares (another pump body) from another place that I can't recall. They do come up occasionally but can be quite pricey.
