Hi All,

Does anyone have a link to where I can buy a replacement switch with one fog light for a rhd car?

I’ve been looking online and have found heaps with the off function but they all have two fog light buttons

Thanks

They don't seem to appear on Ebay very often. The part number you require is 13470453 the most common version for two foglights is 13470454.

Yeah I have had a look on EBay and didn’t find one. Are there any parts shops somewhere in Europe that do international postage (I’m in Australia)
Otherwise I’ll keep an eye on ebay

You could always get one of the guys on here to order you one and then mail it to Australia ?? I've done stuff like that before and had it done for me by a mate in the states who got me some bike spares for me zzr1100 that weren't available in the UK.

Only problem is that postage could end-up being quite high. UK international postage rates aren't exactly cheap.

**EDIT** Just priced one up on genuine parts search.....£83.38 !!!! Ouch. Mebbe be patient and see if one comes up on eBay :mrgreen:

if you fit this corsa switch which i understand switches the auto lights off do the drls still stay bright or do they dim just like they do with the original switch when you turn the auto lights off. ?

So I gave up looking for one of these and just went the one with two fog light buttons.

Just for others interest, it works a treat. I finally can turn off the lights if I want too.

The front fog light button works and shows the symbol on the dash but obviously the car does not have a front fog light to turn on. Maybe I’ll put one in one day.

The rear fog light works as it should.

I think I’ll have a go at swapping out the leds so that it has white illumination instead of red.

I also bought a corsa switch for my car, as the constant burning of dipped beams was driving me crazy. Found a part from a spanish seller on ebay and got it shipped to Finland for about 40 euros.

Thanks for all you posting on this thread, it was an easy swap to do with your instructions. I think I’ll let the switch be red for now, if it starts bothering I’ll have to try my soldering skills after a decade of not even touching a soldering iron :mrgreen:

yeah i also opted in for that "option".

the light sensor is really retarded.

also one should not forget to disable the android auto google maps autodim option. since it becomes unreadable when it darkens.
