Wink How to fit 960 light up window switches

later 940/960 switches have a light up facility when the ignition is on, they look much better than the standard 240 switches as the little pic of the widow lights up!! they take around 10 mins to change and make a big must buy 5 pin switches as four pin will not work

tools needed........ torx 25 bit and long handle. small thin flat screwdriver.

first remove the rubber screw bungs and then remove the torx bits and the handle comes away but careful not to pull switch too far as to stretch the wires.

make a note of which wire fits which switch, the wires will only fit onto the switches one way so its impossible to fit new switches wrong way round.

once removed the switches look like this from the rear

now using the small flat screwdriver carefully push down the edge of a switch and prise tab backwards, dont worry about bending the peg as when switch is removed it pushes back into place

once both pegs are prised back the switch pushes out from the front

fitting the new switches is a revesal, just push in the new switch and connect the wires and test before refitting arm rest. hold switch in clasped hand and you will see it lit up,if you have rear electric windows and you find its not working dont panic check the window lock button on drivers switch pack!!

once finished you should now have nice new switches, now wait till dark and view your work!!
