Questions about 'in-dash spoiler switch' DIY mod


Recommended Posts

Hello guys,

I want to do Scouser's 'In-dash spoiler switch' modification to my MY2000 C2 Cabrio. I have a couple of questions though:

• What's the best way to remove the blank switch (below) once I pry the switch tab off the dash? Does it snap off? I'm afraid to force it, there must be a trick

to it someone knows...

• In my car all the 'tip switches' on the left side are blanks so for the new switch to light I'll have to connect it to the other side, can I run the wires above the

PCM unit to the covertible top switch? Will that work?

to it someone knows... Just pop it out.

I don't have PCM but I'd bet you can run the wire over, or under or behind it.

To get the blank plate out, just use both thumbs and fore fingers and squeeze the four posts at the corners and pull out. You don't have to squueze very hard and sometimes a little rocking motion helps. Also you can run the wires for the backlight on the new switch either under, over or behind the PCM.
