rs headlight switch

Hello, folks!
does anybody know if this wire goes to the headlightswitch?
It has one light-blue wire and one brown. It also has a grommit, so my guess is that is shall go trough the firewall somewhere..

Lars - Yes, is should run through the firewall.The light blue comes from the headlight switch and the brown comes from the ignition switch. Both are used to control headlight door opening and closing.

On the interior side, you should have 12V on the light blue when the headlight switch is pulled fully out and 12V on the brown whenever the key is in the 'ON' position.

Re: rs headlight switch

ok.
But how does it connect?there isn't one connector for each wire, so it has to connect at the same place..

Re: rs headlight switch

I think the end you are holding will pass through a hole in the firewall below the master cylinder. Then on the interior side you should find a similar connector that mates to it. This assumes your dash wiring is intact.

Re: rs headlight switch

What is the trick to seperate the headlightswitch? I need to get the knob out, to release the entire thing, but I am too dumb to figure this out. I don't want to break anything either..

Re: rs headlight switch

It's a little complicated. On the switch there is a spring-loaded push button. Hold it in and pull the knob and shaft of the switch out. You have to hold the push button in hard and jiggle the knob out. Then you can unscrew the bezel. I think I used a butter knife across the bezel. There is a special tool if you want to spent the money.

Re: rs headlight switch

here ya go this is my 69 unit but same spring loaded button is used. Slowly push it in, slowly pull out the shaft as you hold the pin 'in'.

Re: rs headlight switch

So, I need to pull the lightblue wire from the headlightswitch and the brown from the ignition, and then connect them to the blue and brown from the harness, right?

Re: rs headlight switch

"Pull" meaning disconnect? No, you should have a connector somewhere above your brake pedal with only a brown and light blue wire that mates to the one shown in your photo.

Re: rs headlight switch

yes, I ment disconnect..
Haven't seen that connector, but it's a pain in the a$$ to see anything under the dash. But I'll sure look for it!
Thanks Thomas

Re: rs headlight switch

Is that connector in both rs and non-rs cars?
It might be me that just don't see this, but here it looks like the light blue and brown should be disconnected..

Re: rs headlight switch

Nope, Schematics show connections "disconnected" for clarity and illustration purposes. If I am understanding your question correctly. And as Tom said. You should have a connector in the dash harness for the RS headlights, unless the harness is wrong.

Re: rs headlight switch

So there's no difference in RS and non-RS wiring?
I thought that since my car is not an original RS, that I had to take a shortcut and do like the picture says..But I have been wrong before..
