I think someone from LEC should post an auction for the same manual for 1 cent with a link to all the sites where they are hosted for free.

Unless this guy's version is signed by everyone at Lotus who ever touched an Elan. And is bound with gold thread.

I understand the emotion, but posting a link to my web page on eBay isn't a great idea since I deal with eBay a LOT and others that don't have any reason to get the manuals will start selling copies.

Also the manual page hosting is free to LEC as a courtesy but I pay for hosting all of my different sites every year.

No offense but I wasn't specifically meaning you. There's plenty of places where someone can get the manuals for free including here.

Yup, it's used for the rear windows of Senators and Carltons of the '86 to '92 era, and probably some other models. M100 switch is GM Part Number is 90 282 849 BR and it's the BR that's tricky. I think it means the trim was brown as the M100 plastic is a deep brown. Not many brown trimmed Carltons .. most switches seem to be black and the spare I bought for a few pounds was black so I need to buy another one or swap the switch internals into the brown housing if one goes wrong... but I'm relying on by having a spare I'll never need it. :lol:
