    Description

    Please Note:

    Many used items in our picture(s) have been cleaned and/or bead blasted prior to being photographed to show condition and detail. The item you receive, in most circumstances, will be pulled from the donor car and shipped to you without being cleaned. We do not retake pictures each time a used item sells. Pictures are a good indicator of what you will receive, but not all used parts age the same. On high dollar parts, email us and we can send a few pictures of the actual part available.

    "Core" Items: If we use the word "Core" in the title of the product, the item has been deemed rebuildable, but has not been rebuilt.  The item you receive, in most circumstances, will be pulled from the donor car and shipped to you without being cleaned.

    Good used dash toggle switch that operates the courtesy (rear opera) lights in the Mercury Cougar. These switches will have no rust or broken wires and the plastic toggle switch tips are sold separately. These used switches move freely and are guaranteed to work. The only real difference between the years, besides the size of the shaft, is the toggle switch tips. That is why we are offering both 1967 and 1968 versions.

    There are three versions of shafts used on the 1967 - 1968 XR7 toggle switches and all three feature the same C7WB-13713-B engineering number. 1967 switch has a large shaft, 1968 with smaller shaft and 1968 with a smaller shaft that has been milled down on two sides. The reason Ford decreased the size of shaft in 1968 was to enlarge the thickness of the plastic on the toggle tips. The reason they started modifying the shaft sometime in 1968 was to create a cavity for an increased amount of glue to be able to remain in the cavity once the plastic tip was pushed on the shaft.

    This was the last version used in the latter part of 1968. Notice the squared design of 3/4 of the shaft. You need to know this information not only for replacing switches but also when ordering plastic toggle tips from us.

    *TIP*

    We have a tool that removes the sometimes stubborn chrome retaining rings that hold these to the dash. Works great and will save you the frustration (horror?) of scratching your woodgrain dash bezel.

    Ford casting # C7WB-13713-B.
