    you can remove the existing switch in two minutes, simpley press in and turn it left, it should then slide out

    ok - i lied that'll take ten seconds - maybe make a cup of tea as well

    Yeah, I've got the same problem. Been on the lookout for a replacement switch - was one on eBay a while back but I was outbid. Just living with it at the mo and got used to pushing the switch back in to turn off the front fogs after I've turned on the lights.

    I definitely don't want to go for the Peugeot/Citroen look of 'I must have front fogs on all the time'....

    I still have my old switch somewhere if anyone needs one, it works absolutely fine, the only reason i changed it was that it got scratched by a mechanic during a service so i thought i'd replace it.

    pm me if you're interested
