Hello,

I am looking for my 2600 sprint two power window switches as they are broken.

I red somewhere that it was similar to Citroen DS but I couldnt find parts.

I found on ebay the crome exterior, but I need the switch.

Any idea where I can find that ?

Thanks

Thierry

switches

Thierry

Classicarco in Manchester UK have just broken two sprints so they may have some

I spent many hours trying to make 3 good swithes from 2 and only 1 worked. They don't wear well over 50 years!

I have some all black Jag ones which are a similar size if you are interested but they will need a new mounting plate

cheers

Ian

Relays for switches

Just a couple of thoughts on the switches - these Dorman switches look like a good option as an alternative , but they are probably only designed for low current switching of a relay, not switching the full power to the motor and may burn out if used for full current switching.

Also on the 2600 sprint it is easy to blow a 10 amp fuse when closing the windows as there is no reed switch to sense when the window isfully closed or open . So if you keep pressing the switch the current goes up until the fuse blows.

I read somewhere that the last sprints had overload fuses/relays which could be reset after an overload. So with these Dorman switches I suggest you fit a relay with a 10 amp current overload ( the old motors still need the max power you can give them to move) with a 5 second reset after overload.

This problem is common on these Ducellier switches ( French electrics in an Itallian car!) and the same switches appear in similar era Ferrari's. Iso's etc . So are now very pricey. But there is a lot on the Ferrari forums on replacing switches and window motors with Ford units if you need it.

Then you have the fun of different wiring to different window motors depending on age . You can see the mess I got into on this post - after 3 days work the windows did both work for a day ! When I sold the car one did down and the other didn't work atall!
