Need more info on what you're referring to. If you're trying to replace the lights on switches, forget it. The headlight switch, wiper switch, gear shift, etc. are all lit using a flexible 'circuit' board type setup. It uses a thin brown film with conductors adhered to the back side of the film. The film is the entire size of the switch. There are two ends to this film that slide into a slot where they're supposed to stay put! They don't. Usually they'll stay in place for a few weeks then one by one your dashboard switches will start going out. I have 3 Reatta's. Only one has switches that illuminate and it's a '90 Convertible w/only 45k miles. Garage kept since new and original AZ car. I also have two 'Select 60's' if you know what they are.

If I'm wrong in what you're asking about, let me know. Bruce McGowan - waterskiers2@yahoo.com
