Hi peoples

with the AU i understand there were a series of 3 starting from 1999

my partner has what i believe is a series 2 [2001] with a damaged door lock switch. bought one off ebay however its a 4 plug version unlike partners 2 pin plug. what version do i have??

item i found [but the middle pic was not there originally]

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Ford-au-central-locking-button-fairmont-falcon-ghia-fairmont-xr6-xr8-ltd-te50-/181145106830?_trksid=p2047675.l2557&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEWNX%3AIT&nma=true&si=4S8lizdLeHnkRc4YWlzcFKelGi4%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc

the button shape is correct for the switch base she has, however the base may not be correct :roll:

its interesting the switch you put up is different to the ones I have seen...
is yours a 98 au?? maybe early au had different style of switches

this is the style of switches used in the au 1 Fairmont, au 2 onwards..
