    front brake light switch

    since it was standing (and possibly due to the fact that it's dark more often so I notice it, could have been doing it before for all I know!! ) my brake light switch sometimes sticks on until I've used it a few times. By the end of my commute of 15 miles the brake light goes out by itself, at the start I have to flick my lever forward to make it go out.

    Is this likely to be fixable? My brakes are bled, but not super hard (I like a bit of give) I'll give it a squirt of WD tomorrow and see if that helps, but as far as I can tell the problem must lie in the master cylinder somewhere, don't think the switch is removable is it?

    The brake light switch is just mounted by two press in mouldings. Give it a tweak, with a flat head if needs be, and you'll have the switch off in no time squire

    Probably find that the lever could do with taking out,cleaning and having some new grease on the pivot.

    That and a squirt of WD40 on the switch plunger to flush out any stickyness.

    That cured the same thing on my SV
