Headlight Switch
« on: January 25, 2014, 11:27:02 AM »
I have 2 headlight switches, one has 175 and the other has 173 on it. Can't say which one was originally on the car, which is a non-RS with factory console gauges. Research here indicates that 1995173 is correct for this application, but the AIM doesn't appear to call up this with RPO U17. The AIM does however specify different part numbers for console/non-console RS cars under RPO Z22. The earliest documentation I could find 1995173 in is the 1972 P&A catalog.
I'm going to use the 173 switch, based on research and advice here, but can anyone confirm if it is an assembly line correct part #?

Another member has confirmed via email that 173 is correct for my application, so good to know. Thanks CRG.

Quiz tomorrow, not multiple choice.

69 P&A manual 721a say 1995173 is the 69 headlight switch for non RS with console, 1995175 is non RS without console, 1995176 is RS without console, and 1995177 is RS with console.

1995169 is the 67 headlight switch for all cars, and 68 non RS cars, 1995167 is for all 68 with RS.
