Default Where to find an on/off rocker switch that will fit in the switch bay on the STi ????

I'm installing a couple things and am planning on putting an on/off illuminated rocker switch in. I want to put it in the little switch bay in one of the empty slots by the I/C Spray button.

Where would I find a switch or button that would drop in that slot? I'd like for a exact fit so it doesn't look tacky. Any suggestions?

digikey.com has electrical components. You can cut your own slot and drop a switch in. They do have a minimum order value though or they add on like...10 bucks.

See if the fog switch works for what you want.

I found LOTS of switches that fit in the local junkyard. It's a pretty standard size, just go to any U-Pull it type place and for a couple of bucks you can get what you want - though it may have some symbol that is not relevant to the function you are using it for.

^^^ good idea

You can just pop out one of the blanks and carefully slot it to fit a regular rocker switch - your main prob is going to be getting the illumination to work right with Subaru's funky switched ground system
