Question about Volkswagen Passat

97 Passat Headlight Knob Removal I want to pull the headlight knob off the switch to get to the dash light dimmer. It appears as though the dimmer stays with the trim piece that snaps off once the headlight knob is removed. How does the knob come off?

Trying to remove light and washer wiper knobs from 1001 Ford F150.


Headlight knobs are attached to a long stem into rueastat switch (dash light dimmer ) push the small button spring loaded of headlight switch behind dash panel. Knob with stem will come out. Careful not to turn on headlights & run battery dead.
Wiper knob has a release tang behind knob push up tang with a small screw driver ( pocket type flat ) or look for a small set screw on knob
Speedometer cable may be broken,loose from dashboard connection,loose from transmission or broken cable gear in trans. Not sure when ford swicthed to magnetic sensors. Possible lost pick up sensor on drive shaft

If you already have the switch out, go ahead and replace it. the carbon brush that changes the resistance for dimming is old (1997). Test by one lead on your meter to the brush. The other lead to the large terminal on the rheostat coil. Rotate the shaft to see if resistance varies.

1993 f-150 headlight switch removal? Take dash apart or is there a better way? No access to the switch from under dash.


the pull switch for the hed lights snaps in place, if you pull out to turn the lights on and turn the knob as to dim the lights you'll see a notch in the knob. with a small screw driver or pick tool you can lift a metal tab and remove the knob, then remove to two trim pieces left and right of the steering wheel and there will be two 1/4 in nut drive screws, remove those and the gage cluster dash trim can be pulled right off exposing the head light switch

You need a new headlight switch most likley. Try turning the knob to dim and brighten quickly and push in and out on the headlight between parking and headlights.

Headlight switch removal. Once I can get at the switch how does it come out?


take off dash trim, under the switch is a button, push it in and pull out the knob. remove bolt holding switch and you will have to wiggle to get it out. when putting in the knob sometimes it will not want to catch, pull out knob rotate 120 and insert again, this was the hardest part.

How do you remove/replace the light switch on the dash


It's easy, I had a 98 F-150 (same switch) and I removed the switch a couple of times.

Disconnect Neg battery cable, then turn switch to ON position and pull knob outward to the fog light ON position. Using a small screwdriver, pry the knob off the headlight switch.

Turn the knob 180 degrees from the ON position an reinstall it back onto the headlight switch.

Turn the headlight switch to the OFF position, then rotate the knobclokcwise as far as possible and hold it. This will enable the lockingtab on the back to retract and the headlight switch to be removed fromthe instrument panel.

How do I replace the headlight switch in a 1985 ford f150 xlt


  1. Disconnect the battery ground cable.
  2. Depending on the year and model remove the wiper/washer and fog lamp switch knob if they will interfere with the headlight switch knob removal. Check the switch body (behind dash, see Step 3) for a release button. Press in on the button and remove the knob and shaft assembly. If not equipped with a release button, a hook tool may be necessary for knob removal.
  3. Remove the steering column shrouds and cluster panel finish panel if they interfere with the required clearance for working behind the dash.
  4. Unscrew the switch mounting nut from the front of the dash. Remove the switch from the back of the dash and disconnect the wiring harness.
  5. Install in reverse order.
Good luck.....
