Question Which Cali top motor and switch do you have?

I have a 98 Cali Sport. I have two threaded motors with different pigtails.

The original in the foreground has a single socket that connects to wiring that is connected to a switch. The one installed when I got the car, I suspect a relatively new motor.


The new motor I received has a pigtail that has a switch socket, then a connector that goes to power, depicted in the background. Meaning there are at least three types of motor setups. (Allen, threaded #1 and threaded #2)

I can and will use my original motor as it was my top that had failed. My question is, what type of switch goes on the second harness configuration?

If I end up using the other (new) motor, I can swap the connectors, but I was wondering if there is any difference or advantages between the two setups.

If you have the second setup, I'd appreciate a pic or the part# for the switch please.

Thanks!

Four types. I have another with an allen socket with the switch pigtail.
