you don't need to remove the dash top, remove the headunit and pull the panel out (it just pulls away from the dash), you can then easily access the back of the buttons with all the wiring.

Does it work if you wiggle it about? Mine was a bit tempremental, gave it a quick spray with wd40 and its been fine since.

Rip the facia off that has the switch on it. Much easier to see what the problem is then.

Simple rule for working with Clios. Pull hard enough it shall move.

Is it a Mk2 ??

The plate with the rear windscreen heater, hazards and locks pops off if you get a knife behind there.

Is that really true? so no need to remove the stereo? If it breaks can I blame you?! ;)

Well I wanted to steal the rear window heater button to use for my laser jammer.. But I realised the light on the dash will be connected to something else, so I didn't bother in the end.

But yes, a kitchen knife, meat cleaver, machete.. Whatever, just hack it off ;) It will also work with a screwdriver if you're boring:dead:

i've got exactly the same problem. will the light on the hazard button still work even if the button itself doesnt?

My button still comes out, but I do sometimes need to wiggle the button to get them to flash, sometimes its fine tho. Just hit and miss as the moment. The light on the button flashes when hazards come on as far as I'm aware. Beware though, if the button stays out and your hazard's don't flash (and your not aware it's on) as i wasnt the other night, it does drain your battery totally! I need to sort mine for its mot next month.

I had that problem- some times it worked sometimes it didnt. It turnt out the switch was bust, just pop pou the plate with the hazard, lock and rear window heater and it should just come out. I got mine from main dealer for about a tenner, but problem pick them up at a breakers :D

Yeh I had a look at the fuses. The funny thing is it worked once on the old switch wen u pressed around it. So I thought it was the switch was faulty, but now doesnt work at all. Where is the relay located?

under the dash in the passenger side footwell. Lay down and look up behind the glove box they're up there. Not sure which is for the hazards tho.

Just check it hasn't vibrated loose first. But to test it I would say listen for it clicking as you press and relaese the hazard button. There are other ways to test it but that would depend on your auto-electrical knowledge ;)
