71-72-73 Rear Window Defroster Switch
#1
[/b]Rear window defogger switch. Rare part! I looked for one for about six months before finding one for my car. Mine was broken off with only the metal stub.

If you need one better act quick!

I try to contact the seller for questions about this knob but is impossible through ebay(if it's possible about shipping to Belgium or not).

Prior to the new top switch being available, to make a lasting repair to my vert top switch. I dissembled the switch. Took out the switching post and replaced it with a short piece from a welding rod. I drilled the black knob a little deeper to get to a brodder area. Epoxied the knob on to the rod for the correct lenght. Half hour and no cost. Been working great and shouldn't brake again.

Any idea where to find the indicator light/lens that accompanies the defrost switch? Or any work around to just fill the empty space and make it look natural?

Was busy on my 71 this weekend, its having a different layout/options than my 73, while both have the red defrost light, on both its located in left corner, as seen on the picts I posted on your other thread. I just realise that the hole you have is too large for it. On the 71, the same spot is being used for the parking break light, the lens is bigger, with park written on it and is likely to match this hole. Don't know why ford did not keep all lights sharing same design...

73 modified Grandé 351C. Almost done. 
71 429CJ. In progress

Back in the day these got broken off when you stepped into the car your pants leg would catch on the bat handle and snap it off. I bought several and put in the hoard back then.
I do have a complete rear window defogger for Mach 1, window, harness, switch, light and relay nothing missing but the two little plastic pieces that go over the wire connections in the rear. I do have a set somewhere, lol.
PM me if interested in the system. BTW all T-5 German models had rear window defogger as standard equipment.

Yes!! Brake light is a clever fix.  Found one for a Ford pickup should fit nicely.
