Electrical problem
1999 Jaguar XJ8 V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 73234 miles

The head light switch is faulty. In the middle position the dip light is on, when I go to main beam the lights go out. If I select the 3rd position which is auto lights. Every thing works correctly.
Is the switch faulty and if so how do I remove it to fit a new one

thanks for the answeri
