If, by chance, you want the switch because the dimmer tab has snapped off, you can buy just that part from Ford for about 6-7 bucks. Just so you know. :wink:

this is getting a bit astray but

will the green bcm plug straight in?

Read the docos on BEM upgrades/dimming, etc.
Any E series high series light switch will do (green connector on back).
