I have a problem with my early t4 blower switch... I have gone through all the fixes on the forum, nine have worked.

So I decided to buy one. VW and VW heritage no longer sell them and the topran ones on eBay, work, but the shaft of the knob is not long enough to go through the fascia.

Where else can I get one, it not, how could I hook up a on/off switch instead? Which is all I really need!

Can't you just extend your knob? (yeah, I get loads of emails offering this service!)

I mean, if the shaft is too short, you can get extensions from someone like Maplins, or if it's the knob part, cut it and glue a piece in to make it longer.

Probably the best knob extension advice I have had ! I did think that, but am worried it won't hold for too long and might snap (too many innuendos here!)

I think I replaced mine ('91 van) with one from a Porsche of a similar era and it was a straight swap. Can't remember where I got mine, but worth having a look around ebay and comparing pictures :)
