Does anyone know where I can buy a rear defrost switch for a 72 Mach 1? Last component I need for the dash but heard they are hard to find.

Do you have a broken switch or none at all?

I remember seeing an article or write-up on repairing them, most times the toggle breaks off and somebody found a cheap donor switch for the toggle, and figured out how to disassemble the defrost switch to replace the toggle....

I remember reading it (because I have a switch somewhere with the toggle broken off) but damned if I can remember where I read it.

I sent you a private message about this. I have one and quoted you a price. Just check your mail box at the upper right.

My parents bought my car brand new the year before I was born. I cherish it like my child.
I am interested in finding a replacement as well. Mine works but the lever portion has been broken off since I was a child. I never asked my parents how it happened. Replacing it has never made it on to the "to do" list.
