Anyone want to donate their fog light switch

I am looking to activate the rear fog lights and don't want to buy the Euro switch. If anyone has bought the Euro switch and still has the original switch I would love to have it.

I keep thinking of doing this, but I'm concerned about creating rattles from loosening the trim. My car has been rattle-free for 35K miles. Valid concern? Or just an excuse for being lazy?

excuse to be lazy. I did this using parts from a friends old switch works great no rattles. It was a little difficult to muster the courage to yank the trim off though.

Never mind on the piece, just did it with a pen cap and a nickel. Did not even have to glue the pen cap tot he nickel, it fits in the piece snug between the cap and the two nubs on the circuit board!!! I will report back on rattles but I shook the light switch box before I put it back in the car pretty hard and did not hear a thing

So, it cost you five cents more to do the mod than anyone else.

Can you mod mine so my rear fogs will work? I'm to chicken to do it myself.
