    My brake light swtich is faulty, ordering a new one today through my mate in Audi, he wanted to know if it was a 2 pin or a 4 pin switch, and as I hav'nt removed it yet, I dont know.

    The cars a 97' R reg 1.8T Sport.

    Any Ideas?

    Thanks!

    If your mate works at Audi, I'm sure he can find out which part you need with your car reg or engine code.

    :iagree:
    Give him your chassis number and he will be able to tell you.

    the R plate switch is prone to going more so than a facelift car.... id check to see if you can fit a facelift switch as it won't arc and burn out like the pre FL

    it's easy to get to, just remove the panel below the steering column...the switch is above the pedal

    Thanx for that animal, i'm guessing that the pre face lift switch is gonna be the 2 pin one?

    not necessarily nick, i have the pre-facelift but i have the 4-pin switch.

    It would probably be best just to whip yours out and check the part no on the side.
