MK7 Fiesta Hazard Switch

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have a sticky hazard switch in my 2009 Ford Fiesta, going to try some electrical contact spray to see if it sorts it out, but failing that does anyone know how to remove the hazard switch/car lock button? Is it as simple as popping it out?!

 

thanks in advance 🙂

Unfortunately not as easy as popping the button out as it's part of the stereo fascia. Tbh if you removed the stereo I don't think it would be any easier for you to get at the button itself. Chances are it's just some dirt stuck down the side of the button. A bit of comp air should blow it out.

This is all you can see from the back of the hazard switch once removed from the fascia. You need to remove those Torz screws on the back of the fascia pictured.

To get that fascia out, you need to remove the screen surround. This just prises up using a trim removal tool (it's very tight in there, don't be afraid to use some force on it. Just don't damage anything lol). Then the piece below the hazard switch prises off. Once you remove all the screws revealed, the fascia should come out. There's the wiring connector on the back to undo (obviously)
