electric window switches

Post by Jack92 » Sat Mar 29, 2014 11:33 am

I'm a little confused regarding the windows switches on mine.

Basically they don't fit?

are they from a different car? or are the holes to big?

basically what do i need to replace to make it work

thanks :)

The switches in your picture were the later dealer fitted ones. They are similar to the later MK2 Golfs, Corrados and Passats of the same era. The original Scirocco ones are a rocker type that don't illuminate (sorry don't have a picture to hand).

when you say later mate do you mean later roccos or later models? ie corrado ect.

Im guessing i am needing some of the rocker ones then as these are quite a bit off fitting even though they work lol

The later model Sciroccos were fitted with electric window switches like the ones you have.

There are surround for the switches, single for passenger and double for drivers side but not very easy to come by.

I do have the switches new, for info PM me.

might be easier to change your doorcard?

just to make sure i'm on the right track it is that the hole in the card is too big for the surround to fit?

Yes you are mate, but it doesn't look like its been cut bigger hence why I presumed its the wrong switch

probably not the switch but the surround my switches fitted fine in the bigger surround or you could get a door card with a smaller hole?

These are the factory fit switches that I have in my Storm. The dealers were fitting a different sort (like the original picture) on the last of the MK2's.
