    Hello,

    I have a VW Bora 4motion with an Audi S3 AMK engine/gearbox fitted.

    Neither of my reverse lights are working and the bulbs are fine, just checked them yesterday.

    I suspect this is the common gearbox switch issue and would like to order a replacement.

    The only thing is, I'm unsure of the type I need, I was told the engine in the car came from a 2002 AMK S3 but that's all I know.

    Looking at ETKA there seems to be a couple of versions of this switch - 02k 945 415 (transmission case magnesium), and 02k 945 415 G (transmission case aluminium).

    Then there are also a couple of versions on EuroCarParts.

    Unfortunately I can't phone Audi/VW because the car is a mix mash of parts :)

    Thanks in advance.

    IF you tell the VW/Audi parts man that you have an S3 then they should be able to get you a parts number.

    By the way, any pics of your bora?

    Audi just said it's either of those part numbers but he doesn't ever remember seeing a magnesium one so I'll just go for the Alu one.

    On another note, injector seal prices are nuts! £4 for a single o-ring!?

    Will get pics sorted later on Westy.

    have you checked the fuse and bridged the wires at the switch to confirm its actually faulty?

    You know what, I haven't actually...

    I just always assume the worst now. I'll give that a check tonight.

    Don't suppose you know what fuse number it is off the top of your head?

    Yeah I'll take you up on that, PM me the details and can pay you tonight.

    P/N is 035 906 149 A, ETKA says they are the same.

    Thanks
