1990 3LE. rear brake light switch stopped working:
Can it be repaired or do I need to get a new switch?
To replace the switch, do I need to remove the whole footpeg/brakepedal/master cylinder assembly or can you somehow coax it out without doing it?

Thanks!

If you unhook the link spring to the pedal, thereís a plastic nut wound onto the underside of the switch to hold it in place. If you can loosen that to remove it thatís all thatís needed apart from the electric plug

You have to remove the whole lot by undoing the two bolts. You don't have to take off the M/C. When you get to the switch unbolt it and throw it away. Then get yourself a hydraulic pressure switch from eBay, they cost about £6. It will mean bleeding the brake fluid again but well worth it. I also altered my brake light wiring to fit a 2 pin connector on. Iíll put some photos up when I get to my laptop.

You need a M10 x 1.25 pitch thread.
