Replacing stock O/D off and Rear Wiper Switches

Hey everyone,

So I've been cleaning up some of my previous electrical work and I was wondering if it was possible to replace the stock O/D off and rear wiper switches with aftermarket ones like you'd find at OTRATTW. Thanks!

I have no idea how well those switches fit, but I'm sure I've seen pics of that type of switch in the stock location.

Never thought to Google it, just figured it was some weird acronym.

I already have two of those switches in the factory location, I just need to know if I can use them to wire up the O/D off and rear wiper

I can tell you that the Contura II & IIIs don't fit the OEM hole precisely. They are a little big. A little work with a router/grinding stone on a dremel though and you can make them fit. No idea about the Vs or the Xs.

Haven't looked at the drawing but it would depend on whether the switch sends a constant signal (probably a ground) or a momentary signal to the PCM. If the Overdrive push button is Push on/Push off then a regular SPST switch would work. Rear defrost would probably be the same. Rear wiper would probably need a Off/On/On switch.
