Disable Daytime Running Lights?

Does anyone know of a way to disable my daytime running lights (until i get a euro switch)??
I remember doing this is on my A3 jetta by clipping the yellow wire...

Any help would be greatly appreciated...

I think what people do with MK4's is use some electrical tape on the switch itself. I'm not totally sure which wire it is though.
