I'm just wonering how the hell I'm supposed to get this headlight switch back together. I've taken it apart to change the lights, but I can't for the life of me work out how I can get the shaft thingy into the backing with the ball bearings in place.. Whenever I try and put both in, the spring just shoots the other one out he other side. Is there a special trick to get the thing back together? (I'm talking about the bit that makes the switch 'click' from one light option to the other.
i found putting it together in 2 parts easy first by putting the main housing and dimmer together then putting the backing and the main shaft (the centre one) together then slide the 2 together
I ended up gluing one to the spring, and using a tiny screwdriver to get the other one in.
****ed if I will ever pull the thing apart again though! Easier just to buy another one
EDIT: This was in a VS, I assume they work pretty well the same way
I've tried to press them both in from each end, compressing the spring, but it just slips out when I go to put it in place, and one time they both went flying, so I was crawling around like a sniffer dog trying to find both of those tiny bearings on the lounge room floor lol. Luckily I didn't find them though!
