    Is this the headlight switch unit? If so, then you have to press the knob inwards, then turn to the sidelights position. If you've got autolights, then you need to turn it to the autolights on position, then press the knob in and turn to the '0' position to release the locking clips.

    or something like that.

    Lighting Switch removal

    With the light switch knob in the off position,press the knob in and turn it to the vertical position (side lights "on")
    The switch internal catch is now unlocked and can be removed (just pull it out by the switch knob)
    Once removed turn lights off and disconnect the switch wiring

    It'll still be a hell of a job to replace one of the SMDs inside the switch unit - how much is a whole new switch?
