Product Description

The VW Headlight Switch installs into the dash with a 10mm 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 1958 through 1967 Beetles, 1958 through 1967 Karmann Ghias, 1968 through 1970 Type 2 Bus models, and non-push button 1962 through 1973 Type 3s. The switch operates on 6 and 12 volt systems.

Helpful Hints

Replacing the Headlight Switch (and most all the VW Switches) is very simple. The headlight terminals are numbered, their designations are:

30 - Battery Power from the Main Wiring Harness
- Battery Power to the Ignition Switch
- Battery Power to the Fuse Box
56 - Power to the Floor Dimmer Switch or Headlight Relay
57 - Power to Front Running Lights - NOT FUSED!
- We omit this wire nowadays and run the lights off the 58 terminal on the Fuse Box
58 - Power to the Running Light Terminal on the Fuse Box
58b - Power to the Dash Bulbs

VW Factory Color Coding:
30 - Red
56 - White or White w/Black Stripe
57 - Grey
58 - Grey
58b - White w/Red Stripe

Shipping

Our shipping policy is as follows:
We ONLY ship within the United States and its territories.

Orders over $100 will receive free shipping within the continental United States. Freight on orders between $50 and $100 will be $9.95, and freight on orders between $0 and $49.99 will be $7.50. Large packages ship FedEx. Smaller packages ship US Priority Mail. Delivery time averages 1-5 business days depending on your distance from Southern California.

**Oversized products will be excluded from this policy. Shipping rates on oversized items will be calculated separately. The cost of oversized items will be applied to the total order and shipping on your other items will be calculated accordingly. Oversized items will be clearly labeled on the website and will include a drop down menu to estimate your cost of shipping.

Most orders to Hawaii, Alaska, APO/FPO, Puerto Rico and other US territories are shipped by the US Postal Service. The shipping costs for these orders are billed at the time of shipping.

For expedited shipping, you must call us. All express orders are personally handled by the representative you speak with in order to streamline the process. Please do not request express shipping via email. Emails are reviewed in the order they are received which could possibly delay your shipping.

Shipping on any returns is the customer's responsibility. If your order qualified for free shipping and a returned item reduces your order below the $100, you will be charged the according shipping cost for the order.

Returns

For all returns, you must give us a call at 1-800-231-1784 for a Return Authorization Number. All returned items must be unused, non-installed, new, and in saleable condition. The customer is responsible for the cost of shipping the item back to us. Furthermore, if your order qualified for free shipping and a returned item drops your order below the $100, you will be charged the according shipping cost for the order.

Please include a copy of the original invoice when you ship the product back. If a copy of the original invoice is not sent with the return, credit may not be issued. If needed you can re-print your invoice Here

Items returned after 30 days will be given store credit. Credit on items returned after 60 days is not guaranteed. Shipping and handling are not refundable with the exception of circumstances deemed extreme by JBugs.

Electrical items are not returnable. Installed carburetors are not returnable. Special order items are not returnable. Special order upholstery items are considered final sale once the order is placed with the manufacture. If you are not certain if the item you are ordering is a special order item, feel free to give us a call.

Please note that JBugs is not responsible for ANY third party charges. This includes costs incurred by a shop, contractor, or other third party attempting to install a defective or incorrect item. Please be sure that you and/or the person installing the item thoroughly check the product before attempting to install it in your vehicle.

Returns will be subjected to a 10% restocking fee. We always recommend calling at 1-800-231-1784 rather than emailing when you have a question or concern regarding a return.
