Further to Fiat Interchange...
I was again wondering if the ignition switch (switch & lock cylinder) from the Fiat 124 & 131 is the same one on Niva? Again I have possible lead on a aftermarket Fiat ignition switch and if it will fit...

Also, thanks all for the responses my past posts on Fiat interchange.
Regards

Colin "Grozzny"

early fiat 124 ignition switch will fit. 131 has completely different unit.
fiat 125 ignition switch is also the same as on 124

it might be a residue from a time when most of people still had the ability to actually use both hands. now it seems most people have two left hands...
