Hi Dave,
I have wired my new lamp switch up and everything's working all right, but I have come to put the switch through the head lamp, but theirs a strong wire clip stopping the switch going right through, is this a sort of locating clip when I get it through ?

Cheers Bob

tight fit

The switch is a very tight fit in the hole in the headlight, don't be afraid of using a half-round file to take a few thou off the hole to ease the switch in ! Better that than break the switch .

Can I recomend a trial fit with the switch out. When you know how it goes mark it's position on the switch. I then found a long pair of pointed pliers good to position and push the spring. From memory the flats don't go on the longest flat section of the sitch.
