    Two switch Questions...hazard switch and light switch

    Hi everyone,

    I currently have two annoying problems...

    1. i get a ticking noise behind the hazard button when i turn my indicators off, this can sometimes last for a minute or two.

    2. i also need to replace my light switch as one of the red leds have gone from behind this.

    Links or advice on where to buy these much appreciated!!

    I have a 2000 s3.

    Thanks :D

    any input on the noise from behind the hazard switch would be appreciated as well

    I replaced the indicator/hazard switch and it still does it.

    You need to replace the Hazard switch as it runs the indicators this is a common fault. You can pick up the headlight switch from breakers or pay a bomb from your dealership. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/AUDI-A3-S3-QUA...d=p3286.c0.m14

    anyone know where i can get an ESP switch for cheap. E-bay is no good, the breakers are dodgy quality, and I know the dealers charge 30....

    Sorry to highjack the thread.

    Incorrect. I replaced the hazard switch as it was faulty (indicator staying on instead of blinking) but the noise remains. This was replaced with a new part.

    I replaced mine with an A6 switch. There always seems to be A6 ones on Ebay. You need to keep your original facia but the switch (combo rheostat) is the same.

    http://www.ozaudi.com/forums/showthread.php?t=13301 the ebay link is gone in this thread but here's another one.
