Report A Problem

The switch above the steering wheel to turn on/off the headlights has lost traction. The button itself still moves, but it no longer goes through the three clicks (off/parking/on). Its just loose. Its the sort of sliding/toggle switch VW was using in the early 90's.
I tried to pop it off but got worried about breaking it so I stopped. I have a 1993 5spd Fox.
Thanks for any help/suggestions!

Ignition wire breakdown is common, resulting in misfires.

The water pump and/or other cooling system may develop a coolant leak. Oil leaking from the  valve cover gasket is also common.

Reverse gear failures in the manual transmission models are common.

Extensive transmission damage can occur in some of the automatic transmission models when the transmission oil cooler fails and allows coolant to mix with the automatic transmission fluid.
