Hello all. 2008 Level 3.
I purchased a replacement fog light switch assembly from EC about 2 years ago. the light and connections are fine and still work. However the actually button ( cap)? that we press does not stay engaged and keeps popping back to off. I disassembled, cleaned, and checked and it seems ok except it does not stay engaged when pressed to have on. Again the wiring and lights do work. My question is does anyone have any experience just replacing the actual button itself? if so, where on earth can I find? it seems it just comes with the assembly and not a stand alone. I would hate to keep buying replacements if its just the button. however I am not a guru and maybe I am just thinking weird. I know others have replaced the entire assembly with other types of switches. I am trying to avoid that. Any and all suggestions would be appreciated... Sorry for the small pic with all gray border.

yes I hear the OEM Greg. EC stated their part was weatherproof and illuminated. I understand your OEM. Live and Learn. Thanks again GWG
I sometimes replace the ones from EC with OEM ones. To me it looks like the only difference is the illuminating fog lamp icon in the middle of the button. The OEM one looks more OEM, and more defined.

Can you put a dab of RTV or Shoe Goo in the cap to keep it engaged with the switch?

OH ... I guess I should have finished reading your post. Is this what you want ???

If so, send me a PM with your address.
