The light in my heated rear window switch has completely stopped working.

does anyone know how to change the bulb in it and what type of bulb it is?

or would it be easier to replace the switch altogether?

thanks in advance

pull the heater switch out like as if u was putting it on and u will c a gap get a thin screw driver or something and u should feel a plastic clip in the and it should come off

you have to take it out from the back of the heater panel.

pull the heater assembly out from the dash, by removing the vents/screws etc.

tip it down towards the floor gently, as far as you can get it.

there is a big wiring plug on the back, remove this and under it u will see a black plastic clip with 2 electical pins on it.

remove this by pushing the tabs in at the ends and lifting out. the middle bulb is the one for the rear heated screen.

hope this helps you mate.
