    What type do you have? The pull push type, toggle style or knob turn style?

    Ask this guy, he rebuilds a lot of different switches. He did my dash dimmer and I've very happy with it. Devinism | eBay Stores

    I have 1972, pull knob, turned out to be cheaper to buy NOS. 20180309_165206.jpg

    Mine is the toggle type. I found an NOS one on Ebay.
    For some reason I never thought to check there.

    Never seen a toggle switch. Would be good to describe your car.
    The pull-switches look pretty standard, at least my 1964 & 65 A & C bodies are the same, and might continue thru the 1970's. Maybe $15 at rockauto and such. On 1960's cars, one trick is to run a jumper so the "parking lights" are on with the headlights and thus become "running lights". For some reason, Mopar only did that in the Barracudas, thus those owners could recognize each other coming at night. Search on the A-body forum.
