    Default Rear brake light switch

    Anyone found an alternative to 38 quid to replace a knackered switch ? Thanks

    Is it not just a simple micro switch? If there’s a number on it then a search of Farnell or RS should get you a replacement for a few quid. Ebay may also be worth a shot.

    Default Cunning plan.

    20200906_165425.jpg will it work. Can't find a replacement under 30 quid. Switch is riveted to back plate. Plan drill rivetes out, reuse back plate with a new switch. Less than a fiver. It's not just because I'm from Yorkshire, don't like being ripped off. What do you think and advice on what spec switch I need. Thanks .

    The alternative is a brake line pressure switch, have done it on a mate's Husky Terra & it works OK, I did not source the switch though, he sourced the switch

    As Wayne suggests hydraulic pressure switch , banjo bolt replacement type.
