    Defrost switch rebuild instructions?

    I heard there were instructions floating around somewhere?

    Clearly the way I'm trying to put it back together isn't working.

    Thanks folks!

    I struggled with this one myself - ended up breaking the spring clip and had to source a whole new switch.

    Anyway, here's hoping that you have better luck than I did

    Hmmm... I just noticed that both the links in the first link I gave you are dead

    I looked for others, but couldn't find any.

    Oh well - at least the link from Luke S's awesome website is still working

    I had a link saved from a forum in France, but it looks like it requires you to log in now (not sure as the welcome page is in French). I think this is one of the links that Josh alluded to.

    I had this saved from that webpage anyway. I copy pasted the instructions into Word.doc and saved as a PDF to upload here. I don't own the rights to it nor take credit, just happen to have it on my harddrive.

    It's a good write-up with photos. I used some Internet translator for the French/English. I still couldn't get mine back together as I didn't have the patience for it. Good luck!

    I have never once used the defrost function. Has anyone actually used this? I've never seen the window even fog up, let alone get frosty. Then again this is the pacific north west and the car rarely sees daylight in the off season.

    We can rebuild it, but we'll have to send away for some super tiny instruments.

    Yeah, we have a deal with defrost switches.

    I recently had my switch fall apart when pulling it to pull the center console. I had to check out how it actually works and fits together. I might be able to assist you with it next time I come around, Dave.

    The way I see it, if you're gonna drive around in a car, why not do it with some style?

    That would be great. You rebuilt it successfully?

    My rebuild attempt went something along the lines of Cousin Eddie and Clark Griswold fumbling with the Christmas candle spinning decoration thingy... (at about 1:15 or so)



    I've never used it either. Not to defrost the window anyway. My little light on the dash goes on when I bump it with my arm. That's plenty for me.
