Hey Dirk -- If you happen to come across a spare 3960 driver's side seat switch holder, keep me in mind. Thanks, Evan
Hi Evan, I will have an extra when I'm done swapping seats. Let me check the condition and I will let you know.

Getting back to my project this weekend. I've been busy yesterday taking things apart for the following purposes:
- replace busted spring seat passenger side
- replace leaking CV axle seal in transmission passenger side
- replace trans. oil with Redline MTL
- all new front brakes
- replace rusted dust shield for front brakes

The CV axle came out super easy, which I'm glad about. Both of them look like they have been replaced not to long ago. The boots are in fine shape.

A few weeks ago I replaced the parking brake cables also. So nice to have that done.
