Quite possibly. All I could find last night was AMR3600 which is a range rover and rover 200/400 interior light switch.

Okay little time spent on her today, started to strip out the footwell insulation as it was feeling a little damp and the dash as it seemed a little crusty and found this:

So it looks like my screen bracket seals are leaking and the water is pooling in the dash/insulation oh well only found one small hole:

So think I have caught it in time and I can just treat the rust and patch this hole, the rest of the bulkhead is solid externally so I think it was just due to the leaks that it has some rust.

And for managed to take a pic of the switch part numbers:

They are indeed heated seat switches with (i suspect) laser etched covers and a hole for the indicator light. Neat solution.

I notice the panel is actually tapered to fit the TD5 dash too. Whoever did this, did it well. Thumbs Up

Sorry, just seen it's a 2002. Must have been leaking for years to get like that.

Must get my bolts out on my 07 and have a look, if all is ok put them back with plenty of sealant.

Interesting vehicle, what will you use it for? 2007 90 Puma - Love it - Best car I have ever owned.

I can't help thinking that the front support arms for the extended roof rack have contributed greatly to your rust issues...

Update time, oh how I love having a workshop to use in this weather, pushing this beast in and out however is not so fun.

So as I am awaiting a few bits on the engine side I thought I’d carry on with my war against rust, door cards off and out came a wire brush and a tube of rust converter:

The drivers door is very bad and will take a lot of work to recover, both doors have been welded in the usual area they tend to crack.

I then moved on to the dash that has rotted badly, tried to price these up and I can only find them around £1300 Shocked
So I shall do my best to repair this one, the left hand section that covers the wiper motor, well on the older ones is beyond saving so I will have to get a new one at some point.

So with all of that done I thought I would move onto the rear door, this has an additional lock on the rear an at some point the key was lost so I have not been able to open the door, so a little bit of time and I was in.

Stripped off the door card and:

It’s like new so that’s a bonus, well apart from a few dents.

With the back now fully open I could sort out the back and see what I am missing from the front end, so I found most parts but now need to get the two top brackets and Top radiator bracket, oh well. I did also find a bag of seals and copper washers so it would be rude not to try eh:

All seals and copper washers swapped over, now at this point I am finding more and more bodges and cut corners on Buggsy making me wonder what else might be wrong, the egr has failed a while ago and the inlet manifold was filled thick black sludge, a quick clean and a few new bolts to replace some of the missing ones and I thought I’d give it a try.

She runs Thumbs Up as you can see she’s currently putting out more smoke than a chally 2 on start up but she runs. Now my injectors are not coded to my ecu and for some reason I have 3 green Top and 2 black Top injectors, the white smoke stinks of diesel and it doesn’t seem to be drinking coolant so now a bit more fault finding is required. 90 wolf - Jasmin http://www.defender2.net/forum/topic39408.html

The current plan is to do it up as a mobile mechanics truck, my job role might be changing and depending what I move onto I will be doing some mechanics on the side, this wagon just came up at the right price, and so far I’m still well within the cost of buying a runner. 90 wolf - Jasmin http://www.defender2.net/forum/topic39408.html
