Can anyone help?!
I filled up the windscreen washer, I had the bonnet open and pulled the washer switch. A large amount of white electrical smoke puffed out from under the steering column shroud. It continued to smoke for about 10secs.
I have pulled off the shroud. It was dusty, but there is no obvious sign of damage. All other electrics are functioning correctly. The (no5) fuse is still intact. There is no obvious sign of burning in the engine compartment around the motor. I rather optimistically slammed the bonnet...
Bang in new switch? Any hints on getting it in??
