The fluorescent light in the hard top Vanagon comes with a push button switch. I have always wanted a toggle switch instead, but never gave it a thought until my push button switch died. One of my lights was getting increasingly more difficult to turn on so I knew we had to change the switch. We decided to change from a push button to a toggle switch and results are fantastic. Hit the jump to see how we did it.
We had to drill a slightly larger hole to accommodate the new switch, but other than that the hack was straightforward.
Now my light goes on instantly with a flip of the toggle, and I have a green indicator light on the switch. Not bad.
