    Hi all,

    I've got a toggle switch for a car overdrive here - it came with a rather ornate plastic lever stuck onto a small metal tab (about 3mmx1.5mmx0.5mm DxHxW). With age and exposure to sunlight the plastic went brittle and disintegrated.

    Long story short, I would like to replace the lever on the switch for something nice, does anyone know of a vendor for such weird trinkets?

    Would it not be simpler to just replace the toggle switch? I've not seen individual bits of switches for sale before.

    However if you're good at CAD you could design a replacement yourself and get somewhere like Shapeways print it for you?

    The switch itself is integrated into a larger housing that fits onto the dashboard, direct replacements are £15-or-so, plus the effort of dismantling the dash.

    I might CAD one out, that's good thinking!
