Wanted - Light switch unit for FC turbo 2
« on: June 16, 2017, 04:02:19 PM »
Hi folks, does anyone have or know where I can get a replacement light switch unit for a turbo 2? My lights have stopped working just in time for the mot. Looks like the switch unit itself has broken down. Ideally I would like to replace all of the switches and the housing if anyone has the complete set

Thanks in anticipation Chris

Guess you've tried the usual auction sites?  Worth contacting Tim at RX Motors to see if he has one in stock. 13BETC in the US offer a rebuild service (with new relay) but that will take a good 3 weeks allowing for delivery/redelivery.   I used them for my wiper switch and can definitely recommend them.

Ha, looks like I was tapping my message out when boosted sent his....anyway 2 recommendations for RX Motors now!

Meant to say it's worth checking the harness too if you haven't already done so....
