    I have an A6 1.8T saloon from 1999 with the mirror adjustment just in front of the handbrake. I have managed to break the knob off the switch.

    Any advice how to get the switch out - looks like a flush fit - and where I can get a replacement ?

    Cheers,

    Cheers, Martin.....it was such a good fit in the console I didn't want to start prying until I knew it would definitely ease out.

    I've got it out...just need a new one now.

    Really easy job.......just be careful when trying to get the old switch out or you can break the trim, as it clips onto the switch on 2 sides, just takeyour time and lever a bit each side.....then pop the trim is off and you can connect the new switch in

    Tooo late.
    broke the darn thing.
    the switch was glued in the housing.
    tried to pull, push, kick, bite..... it wouldn't budge.
    finally I used my hands and feet with 3 knifes at 3 sides.
    got it out in 2 pieces ( the housing ).
    I still put the switch inside and shoved it in the hole. it fits very well and I don't even see the . I don't know how long before it pops out again.
    thanx anyway. appreciate the response.:rockwoot:
