One of my OCD’s is to not have a single bug of any kind after a restoration. I want to turn the key and go for a drive in a new car. Well, Electric switches are one of the things I have to rebuild because I don’t want a problem from old internal dried out grease. The old grease in them make them not turn or “click” into each notch like they did when they were new. Also, most of these old switches have gunk built up on the internal terminals that make them intermittent in their function. This is the wiper switch from a parts car that did not work and wanted to rebuild it first before I rebuilt mine since I have never done one of these. Well, this one turned out good so I am ready to rebuild the original one.
