:D just to let you know that there are two designs of wiper/indicator stalks. The indicators on both are the same. The wiper setup is different with the early ones having no intermitent with a seperate relay & pull to the steering wheel for a squirt, push down to get one wipe & push up for slow wipe then up again for fast wipe. The later ones push down for intermitent, push the end for wash pull to you for one wipe,& one & two up for continous wipers. The early wipers had a five pin connection & the later had nine pin connection, so not interchangeable. The axle between a hatchback & saloon are different as far as iam aware. The shocks on a hatchback point inwards & upwards, on a saloon point directly upwards. The panhard rod on the saloon axle is also longer. I hope this helps. :)

Yep they are :oops: Spotted them a mile away, I think they where later than that tho, as my 88 has them....

I was feeling brave and slightly cocky about the dates - glad to know I was wrong! My mate has a '77 car and it definitely has those particular switches, so I'm guessing they are mk3 on parts which would be.... oooh.... mid '70s I would have thought. Having said that I do recall going to see a 1987 car a few years back, and it had the same switches.
