Hello! Just wondering if the 3 speed fan switch on my non AC car is the same on AC cars? I'm trying to find a replacement switch, but seem to run into the ones for AC. See attached pic of the switch from CJ pony parts and my OG non AC car switch. Or is there a way to test these little guys?
Thanks!

AC and heater only use a different part number for the switches. Heater-only is D1ZZ-18578-A. There are a couple on eBay

That said, I have revived old switches by carefully bending the retaining tabs back and cleaning the contacts on the internals. Sometimes they're too far gone, but I'm at about 75% success rate. You can also rebuild the contacts with solder.
I'll give that a shot. Thanks!!
