Crabtree 1G 2W 250W Dimmer Black Nickel

I've got this lightswitch and there is a front plate and a front one - they have come attched and I cannot work out how to seperate them, so enable me to fix into place.
All the instructions say is 'put a small screwedriver into slot and ease away'. I've tried two slots and this has simply broken the metal!

Any ideas of which slot this should be??

Just look at the plate and you can see that it is not very thick. It will split almost in the middle of it's thickness. Take the small screw driver and slip it between them and don't be gentle just push it straight in and it will split.

Connecting a Superswitch touch dimmer


HI
A blast from the past "Superswitch" depending on manufacturer terminals vary but it is just a change over switch (1g 2w) with a meter check for continuety between 1 & 2 or 1 & 3.
1 was usually common (small c at side) with 2 being n/o and 3 n/c.
If you have the MK model switching is by Triac so (if you feel safe) connect your switch wires to 1 & 2 and try it .If nothing use 2 and 3,

Crabtree version had s1 s2 and com3 look closely at switch.

Dimmer lights will not come on but the bright light works. I have change the headlights, lightswitch, dimmer switch, what esle can I check.


To keep the switch from arcing and wearing out, they use a relay. The dimmer switch turns the relay on and off, so does not use as much current. The relay is a small plastic box plugged into the fuse box, along with several other relays.

I have bought Crabtree dimmer switch but it came without wiring instructions. There are 3 terminals, one marked L1, one L2 and the other with a wavy line with an arrow across it. Which one does the 'line'...


This is a 2way dimmer the wavy line is the common so your live supply will connect to this terminal .For 2way switching your strappers go in L1 L2 if you only require 1 way switching use either for your feed out to the fitting and disregard the spare terminal.

I have a 2001 Focus Zx3. The dashlights, parking


Sounds like a short circuit here ? You will need to locate the short circuit . Most probable is the tail lamps and their connections , then number plate lights , then any hinged wiring going from body to a door or trunk (ie No plate illum lights) area . Sometimes the dash dimmer can be a problem . Good luck
