    Hi all,

    I need a dashboard switch for my headlights.

    the current one is turning on my foglights when main beam is on, and thats illegal here.

    casn anyone point me somewhere where these might be for sale in the UK?

    The dashboard switches are apparantly currently on back order from the factory. Last time I checked you cannot order them.

    This is a common fault. Try removing the switch from the dash, unplugging it, giving it a good shake, and then plugging the whole lot back in again. What happened to mine was one of the plastic mounting lugs snapped and got stuck in the switch mechanism, so when you twisted the lights on it also pulled the switch out ever so slightly, causing the front fogs to come on.

    thanks for the suggestions, might try the remove and jiggle!

    the S3 is quite rare here, only around 10 onthe road, so wreckies mostly havent even heard of them
