Default Re: 04 turn signal switch in an 01?

yeah clinton, after reading this i was just kinda thinkin. Now i don't know what any of these look like but if there's some wire to play with i would plug the old one in, cut it off so it's still plugged in. then cut the plug off the new one and just splice it together. i would think that would work... it may not. i have no idea. it's just a thought.. and then take the old turn signal and new plug, splice them together and send it to mikey09120. haha. and then make all your money back. Okay? Ready.... Go.

I know this thread is multiple years old, but it is exactly the same question I have.

I'm 6'5" and each time I turn left, I turn the blinker off when I let out the clutch. I'd like to use the 04+ MFS since it is canted more upright.

Has anyone done it? Is repinning the only necessary modification?

Bumping this old thread since it is what I'm interested to know to know more about.

Is repinning the only way to get the newer switch into my 99? I looked at a coworker's 04 and the upward style switch in his has all the same functions as my downward style switch. Is the wiring plug definitely different from 1999 to 2004?

What is the construction of this thing anyway? If it is only plastic than maybe a heat gun can help persuade it into an upward sweep.

Thanks

There are 2 of us that are currently looking for input on this multi function switch swap. We know it is an old thread being dredged up.

I think we are looking for confirmation of the wire plug re-pin to go from an 01 to whatever year the up swept switch made it into production.

OR

What is the switch made from? Fully Plastic? Will a heat gun be enough to manipulate an 01 switch into a better bend?


Please and thanks
