Default Carling Tech switches for Formula

Does anyone have a source/ supply where these can be bought? I have tracked down the part number from Carling, but cannot order direct. These are the factory Formula bolster switches that control footrests and seat bottoms.
Part#- VLDAS002-8ZZ00-000

RedDog382 was kind enough to get the trim/ tab switches, but thesse come from a different source.

you need new ones, or want white instead of black or what?

are the ones in the pic all "one piece" or the rocker switch pops into the bezel?

The rocker pops into the bezel and supposedly the part number is for both pieces. I have 2 like this and 2 black ones. apparently the original owner didn't care how they looked as long as they worked.

they have now brought back the "flush" setup as of '04. I have the "stand above" the bezel rockers in my '02. At 6'5" I have caught my board shorts on the one leaving the drivers bolster a couple of times. I thought I'd like the snag free and cleaner look of the flush ones, although they are a little harder to "find" and use.

I have 4 of the '04 up style on my kitchen table right now. They've gone to a bezel milled out of starboard plastic that the rocker switch pops into for the same look as yours.

I'll sell you the 4 white surface mounts out of my low hour '02. Shoot me a PM if you want.

I can make the switch for you Russ. get me the switch and what I have done is take it apart and install a new back section onto your switch. I did this to one of mine when I could not find a white one.

Thanks James,
My switches all work, but 2 are white like pictured, the other 2 are black and aren't even shaped like the white ones. I want to replace the 2 black ones to match the whites shown.

Tell the people at carling you're from Bob's marine or whatever. They'll sell you direct.
