Has anyone bought their power window switches and if so are they good quality? The switches on my 85 SE work fine but the buttons are broken thru from rough use.

I have used TFS switches. I replaced the buttons with those from a camaro, though.

The switches have been OK, thus far.

Yes, and yes, respectively..

However, you may be able to get from them only the driver's side switch (PN 66561 LH).

I don't know if you can adapt the plastic button itself to the passenger's side.

That is a part number from The Fiero Store.

General Motors' part numbers often have more characters within them.

I try to go through RockAuto, GM Parts online, etc. before I make a purchase through The Fiero Store. While TFS's service and delivery are excellent, their prices tend to be much higher for comparable items that ARE available elsewhere. If a comparable part has been discontinued at other vendors, then TFS is your only alternative.
Also, try to get verification that the TFS part was made in the USA, since the parts made in China are prone to failure. I went through three (3) backup (reverse light) switches for my 86GT before I bought a used original part from Fiero Farms (or whatever it is called). While TFS replaced each switch and sent me a new one, none of them worked.
I also suggest that whenever RockAuto has a manufacturers' clearance on Fiero parts that you stock up, whether you need them now or not. You just never know...
Hope the above "compare and contrast" essay helps!
