Default Headlight switch

On fc35. Where does headlight switch get power? Can’t figure out which breaker it is. How do you get the headlight switch out?

If I remember correctly, the switch had a set screw in the side of the knob so the shaft could rotate as a dash dimmer. There was a bezel under the knob that screws on the switch shaft. When you take the knob and bezel off, it should allow the switch assembly to go down through the panel and be removed from the bottom.

IIRC the headlight power goes straight from battery supply and not through a breaker/fuse. The circuit protection is built into the switch itself. Removal is like Bob said - and when you get a new switch (from any auto parts store) you'll get a new push/pull shaft that just pops in after you put the new switch in the dash.

Or there may be a release on the rear of the switch to pull the knob stem out,
get a new switch and it will be obvious. Try this thread.

This video is obviously not for a Wanderlodge, but it does show how the shaft release works on the headlight switch. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O8zDaIGbA0E
