    Default 306 1996 Mk1 electric mirror swith

    I am in the middle of a restoration (from 3 years in a paddock) of a 1996 Mk1 306 ST. This car is a birthday present for my 17 year old daughter (she just loved it - something different). So far I have managed to fix/replace:
    • Removed 3 years of snails/bug/spiders/mould
    • Replaced alternator (why did they make this so hard to do)
    • Modified bottom radiator hose connection (unable to get that clip thing)
    • Fixed broken speedo (plug off the rear of the instrument cluster)
    • Replaced stereo


    Now all I need to do is:

    • Remove the instrument cluster again (blown bulbs)
    • Replace the faulty horn
    • Find a new electric mirror switch (anyone got any ideas - can't seem to find one anywhere)
    • Get it registered.

    This has been an interesting experience - my first 'Frenchish' car. They build them different..... I think the biggest problem will be in sourcing spare parts, so any help in the best places to get parts from would be appreciated.

    I have a spare mirror switch, but there is a strong likelihood that the problem might be broken wire in the loom into the door. Have you pealed back the wiring cover to see if everything is intact?

    Pugnut 1 is probably right......with 2 people it is not too hard to get the door off........ for access to loom .........sounds like a nightmare doesnt it but not as bad as it sounds

    Fault is definitely with the switch (pulled the switch apart and found track has worn out). I can get the mirrors to move by jumping the wires directly from the plugs. Would appreciate the switch if you have a spare, would save me having to manufacture my own. Looking forward to getting this one on the road, the more I work on it the more I like it (dammm - forgot this one is for my daughter....)
