Default 1991 Hilux Surf part number required.

Anyone have the part number for the heater blower speed control switch
on a RHD Hilux Surf (1991 Turbo Diesel)?
Anyone know what other vehicle it fits, if any? (north american
availability a definite plus)

What is the issue you are having with the speed control? In that year
truck most of the time it is the resistor pack in the air duct that
goes bad, not the switch. The resistor pack is usually held in by two
screws in the duct on the passenger side near the firewall. The
blower motor connector attaches between the two mounting screws.
Here is a link to a similar resistor pack offered through
RockAuto.com. http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/moreinfo.php?pk=443625.
I'm not sure if it will fit your particular vehicle, it fits most
1991 Toyota trucks. Good luck.

The resistor is fine, and the switch is TOAST. Got so hot it melted
the little knob off/

still sounds like an electrical problem. the heater should never get that
hot.

Look - I'm a mechanic, and I know what should and should not happen.
The switch fried. It is NOT a strange thing to have happen. My
Mystique fried it's switch, along with several connectors, due
entirely to poor connector design. The resistanc gets a bit high, it
gets warm - which increases the resistance - and it gets hotter. The
switch is TOAST. Found out it is NOT used on any north american market
vehicles, so we have one coming in from Japan.

the resistor (it wasn't though).

And I didn't
Just checked to see if anyone had JDM information.
I found a source that did, and the part is ordered.
