Hi guys

What was the double column switch fitted to which has indicators, horn, and light flash etc plus wipers and washers etc the other side? I guess it’s Lucas do we have a part number or know who has any stock?
Also looking for window switches including the surround or them if anyone has any? Or know who may has the required parts?

For the multiswitch Reliant part number is 211387 but you may have difficulty finding one.
If it is the mounting collar which is broken (as usual) you can repair it quite easily ...

For the window switches these are usually just full of crud, can be stripped and cleaned.
If not I may have a couple, I think I have the surround too.

Thanks for the advice, I had it in my mind that the mgb used the same switch for the column?
Regarding the window switches and surround I would be very interested in your spare parts if you want to private message me

Column iirc is Vauxhall chevette but they too are hens teeth supply I’d have hoped some bright spark would be able to jump in and do some cad work to 3D print

PM sent, Peter.
Only the surround found - also for anyone with manual windows I have window winder surrounds SE6 and Coupé.
Amazing what you find when you're looking for something else 8)

And the stalks are Vauxhall, but if the only problem is a broken clamp, it's easy enough to repair - my approach (in this link) was slightly different to Chris' :)

Thanks Roger :D
In preparing everything ready for MOT, I discovered wipers were not working again. Traced it to the column switch, which is loose and I've now confirmed is broken as above. Now I like your method to secure it, so will deal with that in due course.

Incidentally, a bit of fettling with the column switch contacts and the wipers miraculously came back to life :roll:

Excellent!
Now I come to think of it, I fitted my two switches to the Coupé :mrgreen:

Good God :cry: £40 per switch, and they are copies, not OE.

I just sold my last lot of refurbished ones for £5 each, I`m 9i55ed off now. :doh:

including the surround
I have a few Escutcheons/surrounds, New and good used, but I`m finding out what they are actually worth before letting them go for nothing :lol:

My car came without electric windows, so I retrofitted motors from an SD1.
But for the switches I made my own setup using simple buttons from ebay and some reasonably clever relay wiring. I actually used the simplified version with the diodes
