    Headlight switch query

    Removal is easy with knob in off position push knob in and turn towards side lights this releases the locking tabs then simply pull out the switch

    Although its working for what i need it to i'm concerned the headlights might not switch on at some point. Ive seen a few units on ebay all a little sruffy though, stoke have a brand new unit for almost £100

    How to remove



    Oh and if anyone is interested I have the very headlight switch pictured in that video kicking around - it works fine. If you PM me I might be persuaded to part with it.
