The headlight switch in a Volkswagen Cabrio is mounted to the left side of the steering column. This switch controls not just the headlights, but the turn signals and the cruise control as well. When this switch breaks, you need to replace it with a working switch, which can be purchased from most auto parts stores. For the best fit and compatibility, you may want to consider replacing your Volkswagen switch with an original manufacturer’s model direct from a Volkswagen dealer.
Tools Used: Tools, Phillips-head screwdriver
