Also possible that VW themselves used some type-1 parts in type-3 cars?

I'd be happy if it leads to a working assembly, given availability of
type-1 versus type-3 specific parts.

The switch was installed by the PO. But yeah $185. Seems reasonable
for a NEW switch. The parts were lost by the first guy I hired to do
the bodywork. He's gone along with some of the parts I need.

Have you actually done that swap? Know someone who has that I can talk
to? The body meets the chassis in three weeks.
