Fog light switch:

Post#1 » Fri May 24, 2019 5:50 pm

Hi guys, having trouble finding a replacement switch for my fog light. The yellow cover was lost on the front side of switch and need a new switch. Any idea where a repLacement can be purchased?

I got some old style switches from Guido a few months back, maybe he has more.

Whatever you do. Don't pay 80-100 EUR for one of these ones used.

The exact same "Mera" switch is fitted to many other cars.
I won't write wich models here though because I have learned the hard way what happens then in the spare parts circus.

Another option is to buy the same sized switch from Hella. They are available from 4.5 EUR new and upwards. But they have flat pin connectors on the back instead of the round pins on the Mera switches.

Or just buy one of these if your switch is working.

They are made for this Hella(?) Switch but hopefully fits the oem one too.

I found those symbols somewhat locally. They cost 5 EUR for that whole kit.

I'll try and find them elsewhere. Don't have a part number unfortunately.

Try google "10 pcs switch symbol set rocker switch" or so...

Not much info on the Hella site, but the middle switch style is correct

I thought about these Hella switches. That matches the w460 ones ok. Think its the ones in the right side of your picture Otiswesty.

Hella Part Number 6GM004570271

There are trillion versions of these though. But the most simple ones with 2 connectors are mainly used on the G. Except for fan control (2-speed) and some other things.
