    Question No Brakelights!!

    Alright guys,

    I have no brakelights and have checked the fuse and it is fine! As i doubt all three bulbs have gone it leaves me to think its the switch near the brake pedal!! But how do i get to the switch?? Its an 2003 facelift!!

    Some one help me as i want to be able to drive to Edition 38 tomorrow morning!!

    I had this problem on my 1.8T Sport.

    Erm, I think the plastics under the steering wheel had to come off. Once its accessible, it's easy enough. I got a new piece from GSF Part in Lincs. (I was given the wrong one though at first, grr)

    Ah yes, it's all coming back to me now.

    Take a delve into the archives chap. Search for 'brake switch removal' or something.
