    sounds like they've given you the lock, rather than just the switch

    The switch is part number 8D5959489 and the lock is part number 8L0827505F

    sorted lol i cancelled the order today and just ordered the switch, i had a funny feeling that buying the whole thing wouldn work without the switch, switch cost me £9 so ill be getting most of the £27 refunded on friday.

    mark is it hard to change the switch?
