I successfully lobbied the original manufacturer of dome light switches to re-manufacture some switches for me. I ordered a couple of hundred and they just showed up today. $8 a pair plus shipping ($2.50). It's probably just my cars they broke on, right? :) I'll post a picture tomorrow night. 7/28/11 update - Acting on a tip from another W-bodier I picked up some LED bulbs that fit right into the original housing. These eliminate the heat buildup that causes the switches to go bad. I can provide a set of 4 for $12. 9-30-13 update - All interior LED light conversion bulbs now available. See page 13 for pic and pricing

Now's your chance to un-bypass it? I always thought that having a dome light in a convertible was one of the coolest accessories! Oh well, to each his own...

I've never had any use for it :dunno: For 8$ I'd probably grab a set just in case, but it would be the last thing on the list of things to do

I like having everything working...I did bypass the domelight on my '92 but I installed a NOS dome light in my '94.

Not too many NOS ones around anymore, so for the rest of us these will have to do...

By the way, are they the same from 90 through 95? I 'm only sure about 93-94.

Do they fit and work yet? I'll probably pick up an extra set just to have. To answer your question, yes.

You'll have to wait till saturday for a complete test. I'd certainly return any money if they don't work, but they're about as close to NOS as you can get . They're made by the same company and from the same molds as the originals. Best way to transact is probably via paypal, my account name is mezz@benris.com. I'll figure out what shipping will be today and post it later on. I'll post another picture of them in the black plastic housing later, too.

Shipping will be $2.50, that'll cover a couple of pairs. I still haven't tested them yet but they fit like a glove... I've actually tried to make the lense but haven't been 100% happy with it so far. I've got a pretty good mold but you can see tiny air bubbles in it. I'll post a picture of the one I made this weekend, it's actually not too bad. I can knock off a few if anyone wants em.

Fire away! $8 a pair, shipping is $2.50 (good for a couple of pairs), paypal me at mezz@benris.com. They're tested and work well. You do need to splice them in, the pinouts are the same as the originals.
