While I was pealing back the onion yesterday cleaning up the dash wiring. This included removing, labeling, and cleaning the fuse block and wiring, and figuring out what and where the unconnected wires went to. Found the interior light/rear defrost power, key buzzer, seatbelt warning light and seatbelt buzzer wires all disconnected, last two sets won't go back.
Pulled the interior lights/handle to ohm out the wiring.
Then started cleaning the connectors and cleaning up the housing.
I then decided to take them apart and found both of the plastic switches were bad.
Left side is split and warped but at least had the two ball bearings, right side was in three pieces and missing the bearing.

Any sources for the left and right side switch components?
My understanding is these are used on the GTV's and sedans.
Anyone with a 3D printer looking for a small challenge?

My thought is that most of the non functioning interior lights are due to these two switches.
Easy to see once they start to go bad and the connection degrades, they will draw more current and cause the connection and wiring to get hot.

Appreciate any help or suggestions.

Yes, the ones with grab handles attached. The black switches on both sides are bad.
