Has anyone been able to correct/fix a high beam switch? My will work on low beam and will also work on high, only if you pull in and hold, but the flip forward... nada worky.

It seems to work a few times when the car is really cold. The high beam will stay on, but if you flip it to low, it won't turn the highs back on.

This Legacy is the LS sedan, so it had "variable" Int wipers and no rear wiper. The switch is difficult to locate and EXPENSIVE.

Any ideas?

I don't know that you can get in there to repair it. Used on would be the easiest.

Don't recall on the older ones but in newer models the combo switches are seperate so you could move the wiper stalk with its controls to a plain L model headlight switch.... without replacing the entire assembly.

I know you had asked about the one on the 96 Legacy I am parting. And I know things have take forever on my end. Seems like on thing after another. But, do you still want it? I just need to figure out how to get it removed.

Ivan....if you have one for the legacy LS with the variable wipers that's in good condition, I'd take it. How much for it plus shipping? Zip 76039

Are there differences between the US and Canadian cars?
