Cool stuff Jascha. I did not realize the 959 is equipped two differing sized turbos operated sequentially. I thought the turbos were an individual sequential turbocharger setup (akin to an FD RX-7 or last-generation Supra Turbo) on each bank.

While I can see that the 101 projects for your 959 may not be in huge demand I bet if you wrote a book detailing all your investigations, repairs and restorations, included lots of pictures of all the different and unique parts of the 959 - sort of '959 disection and resurection' - that there would be several of us interested. Keep it in mind when your doing work on the car and keep taking lots of photos please!

BTW, did you just slide it off away from the handle? I tried prying mine from the side, and I thought I was going to break it in two.

Thanks again for sharing,
Yup, just simply pried it off of the switch and it snapped right out...
