    Welcome to the Corvette Action Center.

    Moving to the C3 forum for better exposure...

    Incidentally, I'm not that familiar with the C3 generation, but is there a high beam switch on the floor - left hand side of the footwell near the top?

    The switch is located on the lower outside area of the steering column. It will have a acuator rod on it that you will see going up thru the column to the dimmer pull stalk. Switch can be bought at most corvette vendors.

    For 77, high beam is on a lever on the steering column. There is no floor switch as in earlier years. Do you have a 77 owner's manual? If not, order a reprint.

    Congrats on the 77.

    If your car has a tilt-telescoping wheel it is part of the window wiper switch. That switch is very hard to find. It is a one year only switch. There are used ones available. The handle should be pulled toward you to turn on and off the brights. Non tilt steering wheels the switch is easier to find. I have heard of people adding a floor switch in when the column switch was not repairable.

    Default switch

    I have a 1977 turn signal switch but not the wiper/dimmer switch. As others stated, I think the dimmer switch is hard to find. Be careful when you get into the column, by now some of the plastic parts are brittle.

    Do you have a tilt - telescopic steering wheel?
