Brake light switch FIXED
#1
Rainbow 
Hello the brake light switch works on my spare 306 hdi. But when you pull the switch out more it clicks each time in to place. You then release the brake pedal so the switch a just to the pedal. 

It works for a short time but the switch ends up going back a few mm to far. But if you hold the brake pedal back up foot underneath a few mm the brake light switch works.

So I'm thinking what's the best thing to do here with the switch working but this problem with it moving.

Thanks

Surely the 'lumps' on the switch have worn away so a replacement switch is the proper fix? Tape seems like a cheaper solution though lol.

Yeah just bang a new switch in. They're a bastard to get to and a new switch is less than a tenner. Had to do one on mine last year same issue.

Mine went christmas time past year. Proper horrible to get to. If you need to dismantle to bodge it, you might as well fit a new one.

Yeah as frosty says. Best thing I to drop the colum. I also remove the right hand side air vent and gubbins as I've got small arms. I can get to it with both hands then.

I managed to do the job with one hand changing the brake light switch. The size of arms makes a difference for sure.
