Hi guys,

Where’s the best place to get a replacement light switch. eBays full of them but I’m not sure half of them will work. I’ve tried one of our T5 and that’s different and most of the eBay ones state that they fit both t5’s and up’s?

Trying to avoid the main stealers obviously

Hi there,
I know they are also used on some Golfs (I think the Mk IVs) and Polos, so a new one shouldn't be hard to source. Assuming you don't have a sunroof it's part #6Q0 947 105 M; if you do have a sunroof it's #6Q0 947 106 F. Even if you don't buy it from the dealer, I've found searching by part number gets you closer to the right answer (but check the photos carefully; it looks like some Polos have almost the same part number but end in H instead of M, and google doesn't differentiate in its search results).
A quick google suggests plenty on ebay as well as resellers such as this one: INTERIOR AND READING LIGHT VW UP POLO MII 6Q0947105M

Thanks. I wasn’t very clear. It’s the main headlamp switch I’m after.

Ah - thanks for the clarification. ETKA gives 4 possible part numbers, but no easy means of telling them apart (although they are all listed as Up!/Mii/Citigo only; no analogues). I seem to remember a thread/video about upgrading the Up! to the T5's switch because it gave more features, but that definitely involved some modifications to the electrics; it wasn't a direct substitution.
The options are:
6R0 941 531 B - 'combi-switch for day driving light, side lights and headlights and rear fog light'
6R0 941 531 C - 'combi-switch for day driving light, side lights and headlights and fog lights'
6R0 941 531 F - 'combi-switch for day driving light, side lights and headlights and rear fog light'
6R0 941 531 G - 'combi-switch for day driving light, side lights and headlights and fog lights'
Probably fastest to pull out your current one and see what's printed on it - very straightforward method:
