You must also remove the wiper / turn signal switch cluster. Before you
can do this... Most of the 1995 Passats were fitted with a splined cone
fitted on the steering columb just under the steering wheel. However a
special pullers is needed to remove this cone. With this cone and the
trim around the switches removed its a simple enough to remove the
All the best
disconnects at the harness under the dash that follows the steering collum the steering wheel has to come off and it has air bags so yeah yer in need of professional help or remove the cover top and bottom and the top screw (torx) t24 i think and 2 of which are reverted a special tool to release the cover after disconnecting the battery the top screw is easily removed but the 2nd screw has to come out face forwards meaning the steering wheel has to be removed as i stated it has air bags a tough part from there and once removed its one unit which controls the wiper arm and hazard as well as headlights lights .. the part new is 195.00 or a salvage yard 20.00 - 60 .00 time consuming and you need a few tools and also aggravating for those who do not know too much about the auto industry i know its a tough one and i hope this steers you into the right direction ..
disconnect negitive battery cable. Remove screws holding air bag to steer wheel. Disconect wires to air bag being. I must stop now. Playing with air bags can result in injury or death. You should have a shop do that for you. Sorry for not helping.
It's unlikely the turn signal switch. Try disconnecting the switch mounted directly above the brake pedal. If the light turns off the problem is in the brake switch. They commonly go bad and can be picked up at a gm dealer for about $15.
It sounds like you have a faulty high beam/low beam selector switch, if your headlamps aren't blown both on the low side. In order to change it, you also need to pull your steering wheel off, and it is also a part of your derictional switch assembly. Be aware if you have an air bag in the wheel, and if you do find out what you need to do first before disconnecting it, as some vehicles equiped with air bags can go off when you unplug or plug them.
