Interior fan speed switch

I recently made a post about removing the centre console on a mk2 punto. Well I got it off and all is good.
Apart from the reason I wanted to remove it of course!
The fan speed switch is broken. It ceased up and I forced it until it broke (silly me).
Well now I need a new one and I'm going to the scrap yard tomorrow to find a replacement.
Heres the problem...
The fan speed switch goes through the console via a shaft and connects to the mechanism. Unless this sheft is broken (like mine) I cant see how I'm going to be able to remove the console.
The switch handle thing itself cannot be removed, there is no bolt underneath unlike other models.
Any advice?
Heres a pic of the crappy under lubricated bearing which caused this mess and another of how the two things are broken apart...

Re: Interior fan speed switch

So the new switch cost me 4 from the breakers yard, plus 30mins to complete, not bad eh?!
All I need to do now is fit a new Lambda sensor and reset the ecu

Re: Interior fan speed switch

When I change the sensor, will the engine warning light go out? or will the ecu need to be re-set?

The warning light should go out, but its allways advised to reset the ecu when after replacing any sensor.
