77-78 map light

Recommended Posts

It seems the map light only works in one exact position if I push down too far it turns off is that expected or should there be a wider range the light turns on with. It seems like I almost have to wiggle it to get it into the on position

Exactly what mine does.  But then it's 45 years old and rarely if ever gets used. I would imagine there's a brass contact in there that could use a bit of cleaning (de-oxidation)... I've never been motivated enough to see if that cracks open.

Go on, be brave, grab a philips screw driver, and remove those four flat headed screws holding on the trim cover. Never know what you might find inside.... 

Then let me know if you need any of those screws cuz you're gonna lose one at least....

I worked on one of those a while ago. No switch, more like a set of wires that come into contact along the front IIRC. You can figure it out when you get it apart. clean and bending was the fix.
