    A4 B6 Headlight Switch

    Hello Guys,

    I don't suppose anyone can tell me if part number 1C0 941 531A is compatible with my A4 Headlight switch part number 8E0 941 531A
    Just mine is scratched to bits and wondered if the VAG switches were compatible ?
    I hope that makes sense.

    Thanks
    Steve

    Same as mine.. think mine was owned by a woman with incredibly long nails.
    I have a 2001 A4 B6 2.5 TDI Quattro, the headlight switch part numeber from mine is 8E0 941 531A, I want to know if 1C0 941 431A would fit.
    I have front and rear fogs on the switch too.

    Ah, i see! Any chance of a rough idea on price of these? It's one of them things, that if it's expensive it just aint gonna get done. Mine has front and rear fogs too, and when used the whole left side of the switch now glows yellow as she scratched it so bad. (assuming it's a she...it woudn't be a man, haha)

    My ETKA prices are usually in the right ball park and are listed at 68.09, so in the 70'ish region.

    Be aware there are 3 different switches from 11/03-12/04....
    8E0 941 531 5PR = Standard
    8E0 941 531 A 5PR = with DIS
    8E0 941 531 B 5PR = with Coming Home lights

    where 5PR=soul(black)
    All switches listed at same price.

    Cheers woorlord! Just a question though, why does DIS make a differnce to the headlight switch?

    And at 70 maybe I should just get some black nail varnish out!

    Thanks for the reply warlord.
    Mines a 2001 B6, just wanted to know if I could get away with using a switch from a VW, can get 1C0 941 531A so much cheaper than my 8E0 941 531A switch on Ebay.

    Thanks again

    I recall in the Bentley Manual circuits that there is a "lowline spec" and a "highline spec", and think the "lowline" does not do any fancy switching of the lights through the Power Control module where all the bulb blown sensing is done and respective errors sent to the DIS. In the lowline instance the front lights are simply turned on through the light switch with no other fancy circuitry. The lowline is the most basic of all specs so may not be a UK spec model??

    Ahhh, i see! That makes prefect sense now! Still contemplating seeing if i can do a repair job, as 70 could buy me a lot more fun stuff, and it still works perfectly.

    Yeah, mine works fine too, just looks terrible.. as do the radio buttons which have also been mutilated, so looking for a replacement radio also.
    Not sure how to do a decent cosmetic repair of the switch though.
    I won't be shelling out 70 for a new switch mind
