    Changing window controls

    Do you have to remove the door card to swap over the window controls or can they be popped out from the door card? I am sure my golf's popped out with trim tools. the mirror one may need the card off but I am not all that fussed about swapping that one yet. also does the headlight switch turn out the same as the VW's? on my search it looked like it did.

    Hi Foxymk1

    I have read that the retaining clips may break when you pop them off and there are a plethora of different types available on ebay and I don't have a main dealer near me.

    the only way to tell what clpis you have is to take off the panel and see, they wont all break if any break at all
