    Default Headlight/Fog light/Dimmer Cluster....

    In my stupid bloo*y clumsy hurry to get to work the other morning, i got in the car and banged my knee on the light switch, pushing it back in it hole/recess where it sits.

    How do you get them out, or get behind it to push it back into position??

    its a sort of twisty pushy pull thing..

    lemme run out to the car and see if i can remember

    Edit: Right... push the actual light knob in itself and then turn to the right a little.. it will lock into place...
    then grab the switch itself and pull it forwards.. then turn the switch back to the left.. its a bit fiddly to do though mate

    Yep, that's basically it. If it won't just pull forward then do as above. Push knob in and whilst holding inb turn it to the sidelights position, then grip the edges of the knob and pull forward.

    I've done this twice before. Just pull the light switch (knob) towards you it'll click into place.
