Anyone have a good source for replacement helm switch covers....Most of mine need to be replaced. The sun has done a job on them. I saw them on ebay, but they had the description written on them. I am looking for blanks. I know I can get them from Tiara, but I need quite a few, so that would be expensive. Thanks
Spemco Switches has them for about $2 per cover, they have blank, and the ones with the little red lens. very nice people, i just replaced all of mine.

Outrigger, you are right! Very nice people. Just ordered my replacements. Ordered the hard ones instead of the soft. They will hold up better in the sun. Thanks for the recomendation.
pacergroup.net has a large selection of contura switch actuators (covers).
I just sourced just the covers from Tiara. I don't remember exact cost but I believe it was only a couple bucks per switch. They were very easy to snap in. My horn, & trim tab switches were shot.
They have them in all colors , plain or with diagrams. Prices from $1.80 to 2.25
I forgot, there is a plastic tool that helps you remove the old covers without damaging the switch itself. Dont forget to order it too.
The light in one of my helm switches is out. Can just the bulb be replaced or must you replace the whole switch? I pulled the switch cover off and the top of the bulb is visible but I couldn't pull the bulb. Has anyone fixed a switch because the bulb was out?
Thanks for any help.
I believe you are going to have to replace the entire switch (the lights are in the switch and not the switch cover). I don't think those bulbs are available for purchase separately. They are tiny and even if they were available, they would be a nightmare to replace (they are soldiered in).
Thanks Chris. That is what it looked like when I pulled the switch cover off. Just wanted to confirm before buying a new switch.
