166 Twin spark, Window buttons, door catch
Bought a Twin Spark Cheap, with a view to sorting out quite few niggles and body scuffs myself (with the help of a few friends!!). My questions are as follows:-
1) Firstly, the drivers side two electric window switch buttons were missing. I bought a SH complete unit off ebay and managed to make a good unit out of the two. I found that the buttons are very delecate and tend to break where there is a little "clip in" hinge moulding. (Particularly in freezing cold weather when the plastic is brittle). All I had to do was very gently prise out a good button from it's housing, and clip into the existing unit. My question is, can you get hold of the plastic button without having to buy the whole cicuit board? or indeed the whole switch unit? I can then make up a second good unit and send it to a good home and:-
2) The passenger side door catch won't operate from the inside, (outside door handle operation is okay) Took off the door card and it appears that a part of the plastic moulding around the lever mechanism on the door catch assembly (the part activated by the internal door handle) has broken off. Does anyone have a SH door catch assemby they could sell me???
