I saw a post about window switch restoration somewhere but not sure if it's on this forum or not so I decided to show how I fixed mine here. My switch was in poor shape and the front two switch rockers wouldn't move individually. You can use a small screwdriver to push the tabs in and release the locking tabs to remove them and begin the disassemble process. I shined up the metal rods for the buttons with emery cloth and used a bit of high temp grease on them when I was done. I cleaned all the contacts and used the opportunity to polish all the chrome and stainless pieces as well. This only took about a half hour to do and was relatively simple to break down to the individual components.
Hey all, New to the forum, if this is not in the correct location let me know and I'll gladly remove and repost! Well I've wanted a Riviera since I was 15 years old, I saw one and bam! That was it, car lust. Over the past 14 years, I've owned a variety of old cars, but never a Rivi! It went normal as it does...one pops up for sale, no money..have the money, all way too expensive..till about 3 months ago. All the cards fell right..and I picked up my '64 Riviera!! Wahooo!! I picked the car up from Boise ID, that was originally from Temecula, it now resides in Spokane WA. Nice desert life. The car is virtually rust free, with only some surface rust due to a carp paint job and the paint peeling. Here are some photos, enjoy! Z First sight in person!
