After driving home last night switching between fog lights and full beam,
I have took the plunge and bought a new light switch. £96 :sad:
My question is, how do I get the damn thing out of the dash :dont know:
Any suggestions welcome. And thanks in advance Waz

Common failure (~£65-£70 for the part)

Pull the knob out and you will see a small brass clip on the underside which you release with a screwdriver. Undo the THREE torx screws (21) - there is one in the light switch recess. Unplug the switch (31) and the light level control (not shown) if you have it. Undo the nut (26) and the switch comes out.

Pull forward the control button -25- of the light switch -31- as far as it will go -direction of the arrow- towards the front. Press in the locking device at the lower side using a small screwdriver and remove the control button towards the front. Undo the fastening screws -21- at the side, remove the side vent towards the front. Disconnect the plug connection -30- of the main light switch -31-. In order to disassemble the side vent, the covering cap -28-, the fastening nut -26- and the inner race -27- of the main light switch -31- can be removed. Remove light switch -31- from the side vent by turning it slightly in clockwise direction.

item 27 needs to be removed along with the nut (26) holding it place.
