Reverse Light Switch on Steering Column Mounting

Is there supposed to be nutplates on the column for the switch screws? If so, what size.. not finding any info searching. Bought this tilt column from one of the Camaro Parts houses.

Are you asking about a sort of nut-cert? Look at your switch. One side slides into the slot , right side of column, you can see in your pic, and one screw that screws into a drilled hole on the left. It's been a while since I replaced mine, but that is what I remember how the switch attaches. The switch is adjustable I believe as well.




Sorry, I'm wrong on what I stated above. In the AIM page 173 UPC 12 C2 shows it perfectly. I see screws on both sides. Maybe the holes are not pre-drilled for those attaching screws?

I see the open slots, but I see no tapped holes for the screws. The AIM (relevant page attached) shows two (2) attach screws.

Re: Reverse Light Switch on Steering Column Mounting

We both found the AIM about the same time. I sure hope there is anther way, or I will have to pull the column again. Maybe the column is from a different year and model..?

That's what I was referencing as well , but just couldn't figure out how to post that page from Acrobat Reader. Wondering if the drilled holes are random drilled or have specific measurements?? Have you fit the switch on the column to see what you have?

Check out your standard column if you still have it for the holes. I installed a tilt in my Z 20 years ago and used the same switch? Hmmm, I'm wondering about that now. Is there a standard and a tilt column switch just for the reverse lights? I can't remember.

Sold my column a year or more ago. I bought this one a year before that. Just now getting to the interior. Dangers of buying stuff and installing it years later. Oy..,,I'm going to call the source D&R tomorrow, see what they know.
Thanks for the replies.

Re: Reverse Light Switch on Steering Column Mounting

This switch comes with what I would call nutplates, with the screws. I already have the switch. I just need those two (2) mounting provisions (nutplates and screws).

Anybody else know anything about these?
