These are the first I found after a quick web (toggle switch extension) search (near bottom of page), £10 a pair.

They turn up on Ebay all the time so you might be able to find them cheaper.

I'm sure there is a guy regularly sells them on Ebay.

It used to be you could be sure of at least a couple in every mini you bought :lol:

Be very careful.... I was given a set of NOS switch extenders, still in the original bubble pack, a while a go.

Unfortunately the packaging had not prevented the rubber/whatever from drying out and hardening.. When i tried to fit (force :cry: onto the switch the old original bakelite just snapped off....

Cheers, Ian

I have also seen them on eBay over here.

If you are going for original NOS parts, eBay is where I would look. If on the other hand you just want the functionality, I found several years ago that urethane industrial air tubing fit the switches quite well. I think the tubing I tried was 3/8" OD by about 1/4" ID. Cut to length and slip on the switch.

I bought some from this guy last year
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Vintage-Spee ... 1973055701

Last year he was selling them in sets of three, so there are probably loads of single spares hanging around in drawers :D

At least a couple of trade stands had them new at the Stoneleigh MG/Triumph show a few weeks back, in the bins with the other pedal rubbers, grommets, screws, clips and widgets. Chances are it's another one of those crossover items used by owners of other BMC vehicles of the period - Might explain why the Ebay seller was listing as a 3 off.

How many would you like? I have at least 10 in stock here in California. Still soft and pliable.
