Ok, so I've done a bit of searching and located one in Sweden:

https://en.bildelsbasen.se/?index=defau ... ery=6490Y4

I have checked the VIN this came off of and it is the exact part number '6490Y4', so it's a perfect match for your unit. it costs 496 SEK which is about £41. There will be some shipping costs, so may be worth contacting them.

More details on the part here:

The difficulty you will have is identifying the correct part - as the number I have provided is an internal PSA part number used by Citroen / Peugeot /DS. These are often not printed on the electronic component / module, so although they can look the same across model physically, they are quite different electronically, hence why there were 15+ different variants. It would of been a lot easier if you had the original part so you could of looked for some internal reference numbers and used these to help in your search for a direct replacement. But best of luck in finding one.
Perhaps I'll have a rummage around in the skip at work to see if I can find it again.🤞🏻

Cheers

Will it matter too much that it's from a Swedish car? It doesn't matter whether the car is left or right hand drive? Probably a stupid question.

I've enquired about that part. Couldn't get my head around the buying process though?

So long as the part number is a match (and where Marc is concerned it WILL be a match) it will work properly. Most intelligent designers will avoid duplication of their work, and why would you want two designs of control module (one for a left door, the other for a right door) when you can simply have one design for either door (and it saves money producing one module as opposed to two)?

Very good point.

They're like a parts gateway for various sellers.

The switch is actually with the seller:
https://haggsbildem.se/en/contact-us/

They have an English page too - use the parts info from the links I put up in the last post (Stock Number W273606 & PSA Part Number: 6490Y4) and post this link in the email: https://en.bildelsbasen.se/24-W273606.html and use one of the contact emails shown on the link above. See how you go.
