How do you remove the headlight switch on a subaru

The headlight switch is part of a muti-switch the runs the lights on one side and wipers on the other. They are not cheep.
1) remove air bag
2) remove steering wheel
3) remove steering colum covers
4) unplug multi- switch (there may be 2 screws that hold the plug to the colum
5) remove screws (I think there is 4 screws) that hold multi-switch

I have to replace my ignition switch, trying to see how exactly to do it. also whats the best way and safest way putting on wheels. how long of lug bolts do i need for aftermarket wheels do i need spacers...

Remove the steering wheel center portion

if it has a driver airbag you will have to loosen the screws around the back of the steering wheel

if not the hooter potion should just clip off

once off remove the center bolt of the steering (unplug the airbag plugs if applicable)

mark where the steering wheel was located on the shaft so that you dont put it back scew.

remove the steering colum covers that go around the indicator and wiper switches.(there are usually a few scres that go in from underneath

Remove and unplug the wiper and indicator switches (usually just fastens with three very small screw from the front.

now you will see the ignition housing.

At the top side of the steering colum you will see a plate that pulles the ignition housing against the steering colum.

this plate is fastened with "break off bolts" the heads of the bolts break off once fastened as to prevent thieves loosening the ignition lock.

to loosen these screws use a centre punch and a hammer and work them in an anti clockwise direction.

Unplug the ignition switch at the back of the ignition.

please note that if the vehicle has airbags you should not switch on the ignition whilst the air bag is unplugged, this will activate the airbag fault lamp on the instrument cluster.

Install in reverse order.

Wipers stop when turn signle is turned on and then wipers will only work when left signle is on

Your turn/wiper switch is bad in the steering column. It's not too hard to replace if you have a steering wheel puller. Be sure and disconnect the battery so you don't trigger the air bag.
