Window Switches

Hi all,

my window switches are really flimsy and feel like they will break at any time. They are still operational and I make sure the wife and any passengers allow me to operate the switches because I make sure they are handled with care.

My Question:

Is there any fix without replacing that entire center console (for $2100 + labor)?

Any advice (and not mean comments) will be greatly-appreciated.

I'm presuming that this is for your 2009 California??

The switch panel PN 82661100 is $1302.71 FNA list price. I do not know what the labor would be to replace it, but is an assembly, not the entire console. Even if the console has to come out, I could not imagine this job taking more then a few hours....

As to Ferrari quality and the feel of switch gear, let's just say that just about any other car at a quarter of the price will feel better. Trying to remain nice; if I'm looking for a sexy body with a killer engine, I drive the 550 or the bb. If I want quality of materials, durability and tactile feel, the Audi is the better choice.

Hope this helps..

Thanks David. I will get the part ordered. I have a guy that does work for me (former Ferrari Washington Service guy), I will ask him if he can do the replacement.

Keeping the California mint is a costly endeavor. I have to change the rear fin as well (82548200). Do you know if a 2012 fin will fit on a 2010? I have one lined up.

Cheers!

Michael,
Keeping any Ferrari mint is/can be a costly endeavor. Regarding the rear fin fittment, I would contact Daniel at Ricambi and ask him for assistance...If they cannot help you, contact Livio at Algar Ferrari.

Best,
