main
Switch plinth TR4 fitted from CT25935 to the end of TR4 production, originally solid plastic. Our part number 706882 is a fibreglass moulding identical in appearance to the plastic part.

Early cars were fitted with a cardboard plinth part number 705206 from Commission number CT1 to CT25934 which was prone to severe warping. From CT25935 to the end of TR4 production a solid plastic part was used. Our part number 706882 is a fibreglass moulding identical in appearance to the later plastic part.

There are several reproductions on the market which are poor quality and badly shaped or just a thin plastic cover. As we have an unused plastic Stanpart sample as used on later cars, we have had our own parts made in black fibreglass to the correct shape. Customers will need to cut out the switch/ choke cable holes as required.

At the change point, the two switch holes either side of the central hole (there are 5 holes in all) move inwards by 3.5mm each, presumably to make the spacing of the switch knobs more aesthetically pleasing. It is therefore important to ensure the correct reinforcement plate is used with the aluminium face plate and the plinth, unless a new plinth is being ordered in which case the holes in the plinth have to be cut to suit.
