xb driving lights

Just been lucky enough to grab a gt grill & driving lights at next to nothing. Could someone please explain to me where the original driving light switch locates on the dash?

Re: xb driving lights

looking on the right hand side of the dash near the steering coloumn i can't see any blank off plates or indentations where this switch should go. Does this mean i have to cut a slot in this position to fit the switch?

You can just see the switch below the indicator stalk to the right of the ignition . Im pretty sure that on the back of the panel its marked where the switch hole is suppose go

Re: xb driving lights

302xm is right. If you put your fingers up behind the panel you will feel the indent area that has to be cut out. I drilled holes through the plastic to make the hole and then finished it off smooth with a file when I put my switch in. Two self tappers from the bottom hold the switch in place. The wire to hook the spots to the high beam is a bit of a bugger to get to but if you remove the side access panel on the drivers side of the dash you will find a spare wire about 10 to 20cm up into the dash on the headlight wires. I think it's green in colour from memory but don't quote me.

And while you're at it put a relay on high beam as well, stops the switch burning out and gives you about 10% brighter headlights on high beam.
