Auto Window Drop / Door Open / Interior Light Switch
I've had an issue with the driver's side window on the Spider since last weekend. I had a quick look last night and greased up the latch but it's not helped.
It seems that the switch within the door latch has broken / failed or is stuck slightly and this in turn means that the dash light for the doors open indication, the interior light and (most annoyingl) auto drop of the window have a mind of their own! I am going to be disassembling the door card tonight and will attempt to remove the latch mecahnism from the back end of the door to take a look.
Can anyone help me from experience, or let me know what I am looking for with regard this issue and the switch location (a pointer to pictures or something posted on this thread would be ideal and much appreciated) so that I can hopefully find a replacement. I have a latch off a passenger door from the GTV I was breaking, can anyone tell me if the switches are reversible from side to side?? Unfortunately I sold the bits off the driver's door - isn't that always the way!!
