Does anyone know if these are still available genuine/aftermarket ?

If not does anything else fit from a different model or make ?

Cheers Richo.

The 2nd gen are a two wire switch not sure if it is pos or neg switching there. Many other makes n models I have pinched switches from are single wire which may work if ours are earth switching but suspect not. I just cleaned mine out with mx3, to working and found a near suitable rubber boot added silicone to hold switch in place and boot on. Working fine now. Thinking we need a timed button push on dash

That reply above based on work on my 89 ute. Just found switch from my old 84 ute and it is two wire but one wire makes contact with body ground as well. I was eyeing off nice mounting booted switches of early liberty one wire body grounding type.has a screw to hold switch in place instead of luck. May be correct length for us. I have also used L series door switch but need end to pack door side to make it switch off

Not sure this helps or not but I'm pretty sure I've got a couple of spares floating around if you need.

Cheers
