Hmm, I think they were used on quite a few domestic vehicles here, never
really looked for one but I can have a peek the next time I'm at a junkyard.
I think shipping to there might be prohibitively expensive though. I have
one in my 240 but it's serving it's intended purpose so I'm gonna leave it
Hey actually I just looked on ebay, there's quite a few of them but again
there's the shipping issue.
