    Bora S3 - Reverse Light Switch

    Hello,

    I have a VW Bora 4motion with an Audi S3 AMK engine/gearbox fitted.

    Neither of my reverse lights are working and the bulbs are fine, just checked them yesterday.

    I suspect this is the common gearbox switch issue and would like to order a replacement.

    The only thing is, I'm unsure of the type I need, I was told the engine in the car came from a 2002 AMK S3 but that's all I know.

    Looking at ETKA there seems to be a couple of versions of this switch - 02k 945 415 (transmission case magnesium), and 02k 945 415 G (transmission case aluminium).

    Then there are also a couple of versions on EuroCarParts.

    Unfortunately I can't phone Audi/VW because the car is a mix mash of parts

    Thanks in advance.

    These all share the same part number as what ETKA suggests.

    IF you tell the VW/Audi parts man that you have an S3 then they should be able to get you a parts number.

    By the way, any pics of your bora?

    Audi just said it's either of those part numbers but he doesn't ever remember seeing a magnesium one so I'll just go for the Alu one.

    On another note, injector seal prices are nuts! £4 for a single o-ring!?

    Will get pics sorted later on Westy.

    have you checked the fuse and bridged the wires at the switch to confirm its actually faulty?

    You know what, I haven't actually...

    I just always assume the worst now. I'll give that a check tonight.

    Don't suppose you know what fuse number it is off the top of your head?

    I do injector seals for the AMK engine for £1.50 for 8 of them if you're interested....

    I assume the seals for the BAM are the same Si?
