Anyone have a source for the fog light rocker switch for this three prong plug? Interesting that I don't have a hole anywhere for it though.

Haven’t found these connector plugs in the EPC so far. Headlight and emergency flasher light switch have got a different type of plug.
If anybody knows these partnumbers and the sockets which are inserted in these plugs, let me know!

Re: Ignition key won't turn

Getting into this coversation a bit late. That looks like a W463 steering lock. These things are notorious for locking up internally. That has nothing to do with the key lock.
