    Thank you. It's a '56 car, I think its an early 2007 car. I don't really have a problem per se, I'm just interested in its schematic and if there is any cross over between thw switch that mounted closer to the gear selector. Like I said, it's only mainly out of interest and weighing up options.

    Thanks again for your time,

    Kris

    Yeah, its one of the little niggles I have about the car! It's so comfortable to drive, I love it, but then to have to reach across with my right hand, it ever so slightly bugs me. Its not a massive effort by any means, I just think that VW could have placed it a little better (and obviously so did they as they revised the switch location). I've also been thinking about the possibility of a second switch mounted to the steering wheel somewhere out of the way on the rear face that would be more of just a finger extension, increasing the safety as you can then keep both hands on the steering wheel (as I obviously do at all times, with my manual gearbox 😂🙄 ).

    Thanks in advance for any schematics!

    ....Otherwise I'm going to have to get creative and open up the spare switch I have. If its how I expect on the inside, I could interrupt the original push button signal on the PCB just as it would originally. If I get time to day to dig it out, I'll keep you updated, it'll probably fail but nothing ventured, nothing gained! 😁
