where to get an'84 d-90 ROW ignition switch

I have a Does anyone know who carries an '84 d-90 UK spec ignition switch. I don't know about the NAS d-90s, but my ignition turns toward the driver as opposed toward the front bumper (the opposite of traditional american cars). Thanks.

Thanks, that was my first thought, but they are closed until sometime in June when they complete their move from
Vermont to somewhere out west. I kind of need it now. By the way, I guess it should mention that my truck is a 200tdi. Accordingly, the accesory position on the ignition controls the glow plugs.

Crap sorry! I am sure you tried all the usual suspects. Maybe George at Rovers Down South or Stephen at SafariHP. Good luck.

Isn't the switch on partsgeek.com the same for ROW trucks as it is for NAS? That's where I got mine for the 110 ($17).

Jason-
I don't know if it is the same.... That is one of the things I am trying to determine.... You wouldn't happen to have a part #. Anyway, I see that the switches change through the years for the range rover. I am curious if it has changed from 1984-97 for the d-90. Any expertise on the issue would be welcomed.

I will try to get pic tomorrow. Partsgeek item looks similar to my 1984 Haynes manual pic, but spades are perpendicular to each other in Haynes pic. Parts Geek has the oem item with all spades parallel to each other. I will dig in to my ignition tomorrow.
Thanks

Mike:

Also, I wouldn't worry too much about not having the glow plugs position on the switch...this time of year it's not needed.

Does anyone know if this worked yet? Sunday night my wife left the ignition swith inthe start position while driving, (spring was weak) which also broke the starter. So i need both parts - any ideas on a 1985 2.5 petrol engine starter would be great!

I was actually working with Mike on this, and the thing that threw me was the reverse side (away from the spade terminals) on the 2nd switch from parts geek shown here:
http://www.partsgeek.com/catalog/199...on_switch.html

In a nutshell, I'm familiar with the backside of the switch shown here (which has a female receiver on the back made of plastic that slips into the ignition switch housing...though not shown here I'm sure most know what I'm referring to):

The backside of the 2nd switch shown here looks like a different connection...that's where I got stumped. I asked Mike to send me a pic of his switch out of the housing (which is easy to do) so we could troubleshoot and see if the part looked to be compatible:

of course if anyone knows better than I please chime in.

I guessing it is the first - althogh mine just needs a new spring so I may have just bought a $30 spring. As for the starter I asked about, I found it here - http://www.paddockspares.com/parts-a...cessories.html

Thanks Jason

The thing that was throwing us off was Mike's had the blades that are "perpendicular" to each other (similar to the 2nd photo) versus the blades that are parallel to each other (as in the 1st photo).

Yeah - that would throw me off for sure - is it sorted now? Maybe try asking someone like Mike at Riverhouse or ECR, or just try both...Thankfully I think I'll be back on the road in a few days, only been registered a few weeks!

Thanks guys, I think I've located the exact item I need to replace through Trevor at Rovahfarm. Although he is in the process of moving, he was kind enough to respond to an email and send details, pictures.
