    1st gen Wiper switch and knob

    I am doing a small fix. I need a 2 speed wiper switch and a knob. Anyone have that handy? I see you can buy the switch and knob... but thought I would see what was out and about in VCVC world first.

    I found 2 with washers, but your van doesn't have washers(Great pic of you van on new VCVC calendar)
    How many wires on the back??? Seems like there is a 2 speed switch, with No washers?? (2 o R are single speed )
    Anybody got that setup
    Mark remember those emblems

    Thanks I am proud of my van. I did a lot of searching and hunting, and hard work to get it to where I feel good.
    The wiper switch I have is odd not for the van. It is a push on... does not stay on! LOL I will snap a shot of what switch is there and let you see it. I have never actually checked it. It has not rained much until last month. I found I had to hold on the wipers while driving to make them work. So I am not sure if it's the switch too? But I would like the wiper switch and knob. Just let me know where to send the payment. Thanks again for looking for me. I want to have matching knobs.

    Here is what the switch and knob look like it has the button for water, which I do not have or need.
    I would like to have the same type chrome knobs for both the heater switch and the wiper. Thanks

    Jacke, I'll send you 1 of each switch, send back what you don't need. PM me your adress.
    also can you get pic of wiers on the wiper motor when its light(night here)
    Had to go Vintage-van site to look at your build to remember why your wiper switch is next to heater switch.
