    Head light switch

    Just a quick one if someone can help. My head light switch is illuminating intermittently (sp?)
    It is only the headlight section as the fog and switch light up as they should. I have checked and it would appear that I can get to the unit via the fuse board at the end of the dash, but my question is what will I find, do I replace a bulb or could it be a loose wire?

    Many thanks

    Matt

    The unit pops out, there's no need to gain access via the fuse board.

    I think it was a4sline that posted how to to it in the tech section, hang on I'll see if I can find it.

    To remove the switch, you need to puch the lightswitch nob inwards(it's spring loaded) then rotate it left and pull the whole unit out [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]

    Mine does exactly the same thing - nothing obvious to replace when you do get the light switch out so I reckon it is a new switch job. Hence decided to live with it.

    Thanks lads, I must say this site is excellent.

    I thought the same as you jcs356, a whole switch unit, thanks Audi but I may have a look anyway.

    Thanks again

    Re: Head light switch

    Sorry to be a pain, but just had a go at removing the switch and it will push in and turn to the left a little but it won't go any further.
    Should it just pop out or do I need to be really forceful. If I do get it out will the whole unit come out as I would have thought the lights are built into the whole surround thats why I thought about the rear access. Make sense or am I rambling on?

    Hi, from memory, the switch comes out with the curved piece of plastic around it. Just a gentle tug should do it.
