It's not uncommon to experience a failure of your headlamp switch. Years of repeated use and abuse have a tendency to take their toll on the switch. Some symptoms of a faulty switch include headlamps that won't turn on, or perhaps inoperable fog lamps, just to name a few. In addition, there's a few small light bulbs contained within the switch housing that can burn out. Replacing the switch is super-simple. Press in the center knob on the light switch, and turn the switch clockwise. Then pull the entire switch assembly out.

Shown here is a new headlight switch for the Porsche Cayenne (part number 955-613-235-02 or 955-613-235-03, depending on options).

Shown here is a new headlight switch for the Porsche Cayenne (part number 955-613-235-02 or 955-613-235-03, depending on options). Replacement of the switch is quick and easy.

Press the center knob (green arrow) of the headlight switch inward and rotate it clockwise until it stops.
Figure 2

Press the center knob (green arrow) of the headlight switch inward and rotate it clockwise until it stops. This pulls a set of locking tabs at the back of the switch and allows it to move out of the dashboard.

Pull the headlight switch out of the dashboard.
Figure 3

Pull the headlight switch out of the dashboard. It may take a bit of effort to free it up, but it will slide out once free.

Once the switch is removed, press the locking tab on the electrical connector (green arrow) and pull it off the headlight switch.
