Did I miss something? Which LEDs are we swapping to white?
The Corsa switch lights up red.

I have just tested a Corsa E headlight switch from a 2015 car and works perfectly on my car.

1. Can disable autolights so DRL only
2. Both front and rear fogs work and dipped beam stays on
3. In auto mode turn front or rear fogs on dipped beam comes on.
4. Locate function works as it should

So all you need to do is buy the correct Corsa E switch( auto levelling one is proving difficult to find) then swap leds to white, I can do this at a cost.

Thats awesome news!
Just curious, what's "locate function"?
When you first start the car, is it automatically in auto mode?
And finally, do the internal lights switch on when you pull the switch out?, that'd be the icing on the cake!

The switch flicks back to auto each time.

The first one having a working Corsa E switch could read the P/N on it to share it with other please ?

How difficult is the change of the red to white light ?

Pictures ?

Swapping the switch is easy

1. Open small glovebox under switch
2. Squeeze the back edge together so it can be lowered fully.
3. Reach up behind switch and push it out
4. Unplug elec connector and swap over switch.

If you want to swap the leds in the switch from red to white you need to remove the pcb and swap the smd leds (these are about 3mm in size) marked in pic below.Image

cornishtaz: thank's a lot !

both references are "compatible", as you said previously: "auto levelling one" ?

is this UK specific (steering wheel on the right) or symetric (could be use with left or right stering wheel) ?

have a nice day
