    Hi all. have a 3 gang light switch in my hallway that controls the
    1. porch light
    2. a wall light
    3. and the downstairs and upstairs hall/ landing lights
    I want to combine the porch and wall light into one switch therefore making it 2 gang. Is this possible?

    Thanks in advance.

    Ok great. Thanks for your help. I'll give this a go. I've going to buy a two gang light switch now I know it's possible so may be back to ask for help in wiring that up.

    Thanks again.

    Mark the red wires before you disconnect them.
