The VW Headlight Switch installs into the dash with a 14mm dash nut escutcheon and has a 5mm threaded post for a knob (sold separately, available above). The headlight knob has 3 positions (off / parking-running lights / headlights-running lights) as well as a rheostat control (twist the knob at the second or third position) to dim or brighten the dash lights. The headlight switch fits 1971 through 1977 Standard Beetles, 1971 through 1972 Super Beetles, 1971 through 1974 Karmann Ghias and 1971 through 1973 Type 3s.

This switch can be installed in place of the 311941531B Headlight switch for 1968 through 1970 Beetles, 1968 through 1970 Karmann Ghias and 1968 through 1970 Type 3 models.
The adaptation is simple and only requires 2 Piggy Back Terminals, a short length of wire, and 2 crimp on 1/4" terminal ends. See the additional images above for instructions.

A Dash Switch Escutcheon Tool makes removing and installing the switch much easier, click here for a link to it.

- 2nd 30 terminal not used
56 - Power to Headlight Relay
58 - Power to the Running Light Terminal on the Fuse Box

If your switch has 58L and 58R they are NOT USED. (They are powered on at the first position only.)

56 - White or White w/Black Stripe
58 - Grey
58b - White w/Red Stripe
