This weekend's project was to try to get the 6-way seats on my 89 vert working. I was partially successful. In spite of my initial diagnosis, a known good seat track had the same problems, so I know it's in the switches (the wires were checked and they are all OK). I took the switch assembly out of the console and it seemed like there were three switch modules plugged into a rubber holder that had the wiring attached. The end paddle switches are both stuck into this rubber holder by one post each, and no matter what I tried, I could not get them out. It looked like once I got the end ones out, the middle joystick switch would come out as well. Does anyone know the trick? With the high cost of replacement switches, I would really like to try re-building mine first.
Since I couldn't get the switches out to clean and re-condition the contacts, I sprayed TV contact cleaner inside, worked the switches, then sprayed in compressed air. Repeated a couple of more times. This got the front-back control working, which was the most important goal (according to my 5'10" wife; her 6'3" husband doesn't see the need to move the seat forward
