02 Passat, turn signal not working, dealer tells me it is the hazard switch, which seems to be true because I can sometimes get the turn signals to work by turning the flashers on and off
Do you agree with the dealer it is the switch or is there a flasher fuse ( fro lack of a better word) causing the problem?
If it is the switch how do you get it ou?

I have played with the hazard switch, sometime i get the tunsignals to work. Started to try and figure out how to get switch out. If the swicth has to come out how do you get it out?
Yes I agree with the dealer . It is a very common problem. You can get the switch out with a very small pocket screwdrive. Get the new switch and you will see the prongs you need to pry on to release the switch. It will come out the front. It is a simple operation and can save you a hundred bucks labor. The switch should run about 25.00. Here is a picture of it .
