yes the ef/el or au arms can be fitted into the eb combination switch,
but both combination switches need to be pulled apart so you can fit the ef or au arms into the eb switch

here is mine with au arms

yeah i noticed the ball bearings at the wreckers and had assumed mine would still be in place when i got home, but when i broke the stalk, the ball bearings dissapeared lol
so now the stalk is a lil floppy between high beam, so i might just disable the high beam for the time being til i can get to the wreckers, i never use it anyway.

but regardless of that, it was very easy and its not a bad upgrade to do.
troyman, your pics arent working at the moment, is the AU stalk much different in the overall look with the EB style dash?

dont spose they kept the same design into the BA series? :p

anyway, heres mine.

the pic is fixed..
actually the au stalks are pretty much the same as ef/el, except the au indicator has the cruise control on/off switch, which was good for me as i only had to add 1 small switch to the wheel to use the cruise with aftermarket steering wheel...

while were on the topic of combination switches..

am i safe to say that the EB/ED combination switch will fit straight on to the EF/EL steering column?
im aware it wont have the intermittent wipers function but thats not an issue.

cheers
