scrap yard may be a good bet, i think the rectangle size you're looking at is common across a large number of toyotas. just find one with the appropriate switches you're looking for.

There are lots of aftermarket rocker switches that fit in the blanks. I have one that lights up in orange for my rear fog. I would imagine you can find them on ebay :?:

just input the search terms 'toyota' 'switch' 'switch type of your choice'

most of the rectangular ones there are the size you are looking for. it was common across most toyotas in the 90's.

If you're still unsure, there must be a scrap yard near you with toyotas, its not as if they're an uncommon manufacturer.

Hi Callum

I had obviously already tried a search on ebay and the web. Most of those listed are MR2 switches, and i have already emailed one of the sellers and they came back with a size that was too small.

There are not many Toyota's in my local scrap yard and none have a switch the size of the ones on my 75.

The nearest is a window switch but its not a lot of good on a spot light

I am going to a scrap yard later in the week who says he has several Toyotas so i will keep my fingers crossed, if i cant get some from there i will buy smaller ones and cut them into the blanking plugs or make a plate to cover all the holes.
