The source address is selected in the usual way, i.e. based on the available addresses and routes.
That is also how you can change it. E.g. put a preferred address in a route table entry that matches this usage.

I'm not quite sure how you expect me to do this if our customer is running bgp in a mpls network?
Can you maybe elaborate a bit more, thanks in advance.

Okay, i looked into it.

I've resolved the issue by changing incoming bgp routes like this.
/routing filter
add chain=ebsa-mpls-in prefix=0.0.0.0/0 set-pref-src=192.168.6.1
Thanks a lot, if anyone got a more preferred resolution please share.

I think it will also work when you set nexthop-choice=force-self in the BGP Peer definition.
At least that is what I routinely do and I notice it always uses the address of the BGP link as source address.
When that is not what you want, well, the way you do it now should work.
