Need +2S/130 headlight switch

PostPost by: Gordon Sauer » Sat Sep 16, 2023 9:31 pm

I’d really like to get this original switch for mine which is push/pull and activates a servo to move the lights up for the federal +2 and there’s one for sale shown in the following picture but I can’t bid from the US because it says it won’t sell to the US so of course this is a longshot: but would anybody be be willing to buy it and Ship it to me and I’ll pay you handsomely, thanks in advance. I was trying to send a screenshot of the available piece but no go. It’s at picclic on eBay UK from searching for A050M6219W and I’ve been trying to correspond to get them to send it to the US but apparently eBay sets that, may be because the part right now only has a bid of 5 pounds but would really appreciate it; cfp200866 is the seller with only a day left!Thanks Gordon

The seller is a good chap. I went to his house last year to buy a load of parts that he was clearing. Bid with confidence.

You’re right, but I think I gave up a long time ago trying to be one of those great craftsman that take things apart, redo them all and put them back together and the new ones don’t fit that well is my understanding so I really appreciated Brian getting it And learned my lesson I guess because this will be the second time I’m into that switch and when I get there, you can see it’s overheated and that I should’ve put in relays last time I got in there, but I did relay the windows for the wonderful convenience of them gliding! but yes, had the car since 89 and should’ve relayed the lights , and thanks for the offer for doing it Gordon
