Removing the Headlight Switch

Post by Titan » Mon 01 Oct, 2012 12:49

For anyone else wanting to remove the switch, here's how:

1 Remove the cap from the pull switch

2 Undo the 8mm lock nut

3 Uscrew the barrel section of the switch

4 You can now see and remove the fascia plate retaining screw

5 The fascia complete with air vent can now be gently eased out from the dash

6 Compress the two lugs which retain the switch and ease it slide it out.


Before refitting I taped the illuminated symbol plate to the back of the panel.
It's not "nephew-proof" but it makes the re-assembly a lot easier :colourful:
