Can i repin/rewire a LHD master switch to RHD?

LHD to RHD power windows I own a 1998 volvo S70 2.0 turbo after months on trying to find the problem on why my windows werent working i found a wire earthing out on the back passanger door, so i fixed that problem, I bought a lhd master window switch of ebay, not realising it was a lhd one until i got it. Is there anyway i can rewire it to a RHD? At the moment the two back windows go down when i press up and up when i press down while theres no movement in the front windows. Any ideas please?

I want to convert a 1994 2.8 Turbo Diesel Pajero from RHD to LHD. What parts do I need and the cost and where do I get them

Check with one of those European auto importers. It will cost you, but I know they do some high end vehicles that were LHD.

Wiring harness 1993 jeep cherokee headlights

Melted wires indicate a heavy load or a short circuit.
If you're having no other issues and the headlights work, it'll most likely just be a heavy load.
Speculation here, but being a Jeep it may very well be running the full headlight circuit load through the switch instead of utilising a relay system to reduce switch load.
Incorporating a couple of relays may solve your underlying issue.
To fix the contact issue you currently have with the wire, you may need to replace the plug. It depends what's actually wrong with the wire and connector it's attached to. Sandpaper, a file or an Emery board can improve electrical contact on the plug surface, but if the problem is the wire, it may need to be soldered or shortened, or the plug replaced.

LHD vs RHD parts:
Most LHD switchgear will fit a RHD model of the same car. It's mainly mechanical items and trim that differentiate a RHD and LHD car.
So if you know what you're ordering, there's no reason you can't buy the LHD part.
The headlight switch and plug are good examples of this.

LHD to RHD Beam Bender

Thanks for the answer. Funnily enough I posted the question in 2007 not in 2017. I had sold the car long time ago.

In the end I purchased new RHD headlamps as nothing else was allowable.
