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!
