- Suggestions on: Electric Window switch repair or re order?
Hi MX fivers!
Thanks to the forums and mx5 people - when my drivers window stopped working -I was steered to the switch itself.
As many who have discovered similarly, this switch after some years can take its toll, and often 2 plastic little ‘nibs’ can break off.
To fix this you’d think the solution could be quite feasible -possible -
but it requires a bit of creative injinuity
Has anyone found options other than a re ordered one or one of those remitter alternative switches?
It seems so frustrating that 2 little plastic bits cant be replaced easily – and a £50 + approx replacement may have to be the option instead.
(The good news is you can get the switches out from the console without unscrewing the whole console - a bit of old plastic card trick or similar to ease it out - if putting the switch section back may not be a tight snug fit -just create a bit of added tape etc to pack it for firmer fit. There’s a little tab -rubber? -that may fall off when using the plastic card - (or perhap mine was broken already from before)
