Mounted on top of the carpet in front of the speaker. I have not seen it mentioned in the owner's manual or elsewhere.

Yes fuel cut off switch, and it is mentioned in the owner's manual. Better place for it rather than hidden under the bonnet as it was in my old 156.

Top question sensingsys, I've been meaning to ask this since I purchased my car. I like the feeling of pushing the rubber thing on the top :) so did the previous owner as its been pushed in :cheese:

Since we are on the topic, any idea why the phase 2 have the airbag key in the footwell and the phase 1 dont? people may not know, just thought, thats odd...

On the P1, if you wanted to carry a sprog on the front seat, you had to go to a dealer and pay to have the airbag disabled. And most dealers didn't have a clue. It wasn't just the GTV/Spider, it was fairly early days for passenger airbags and there was a degree of wailing and gnashing of teeth over the issue. Obvious answer was to allow the driver to enable/disable as necessary.

Thanks for this, as I did wonder where the key hole was in my P1 :thumbs:.

from p100 of the manual

"Fuel cut-of switch"
This is an automatic safety switch which is triggered in the event of an emergency to interrupt the flow of fuel......

...If a smell of fuel is noted following an accident, or the fuel system is leaking do not reset the switch.
:tut:

If no leaks are found the vehicle can be restarted. Press the button to re-activate the fuel supply system:thumbs:
