    Hi All, I'm new to the forum so no mickey taking!

    My indicators and hazards weren't working (Toledo year 2000) so I've purchased a new hazard indicator relay switch (other threads on here got me that far).

    Now I have the part I'm not sure how to remove the old one before I fit the new one. Is it a case of prizing the old one out with a screwdriver :redface: , or do I need to remove the radio and attack the hazard switch from below?:doh:

    Any advice gratefully received.

    :wtf:

    The answer is you pull the front of the switch off - I did this by opening the cup holder then using a screwdriver behind the switch. Once that's off you then shove a knife down the driver's side of the switch to release the metal prong, then shove a screwdriver down the passenger side of the switch and prize it out. Replace the unit and bob's your uncle, working indicators.:funk: :clap:

    Thanks for the post. I just had a similar problem, but gave it a jiggle at it seems to be working now. It sounded though the relay was sticking.

    My relay is the loudest thing in the car when i'm using the indicators i'm guessing this is normal?

    Its the same part for leon and golf mk4.
    VW colborne in Guildford just needed the last few digits.
    should be about £16.
