[DML] Re: Dash Light Rheostat

Take a look at delorean.com in the tech notes. There is a section about repairing your rheostat.
It should explain how to put it back together properly. However if you've broken the black plastic 
that holds the "little copper fingers" you'll probably still have improper operation. If you still need assistance feel free to contact me directly.

Thanks to all who responded.  I'll tie those wires together!

Cliff, you are correct in that it's not a rheostat with windings.  I 
just didn't know what else to call it.  "Dimmer" probably would have 
been more generic.

My interest in repairing this part would just be to have it "right," 
if not for me, then for some potential future owner.  For me, this 
location does look prime for mounting some other, to-be-defined, 
more useful control in place of the dimmer! 

Since you've actually managed to get some of these working, I'd like 
more info from you on the earlier questions in my original post if 
you wouldn't mind emailing me off-list.  Specifically, I would like 
elaboration on your phrase "glue the broken shaft parts."  My guess 
is, if the little disc is in the proper spot and not flopping 
around, the little copper wipers will work properly again.
