Re: replacing brake stop switch
I've done it so often, I can replace the switch in 10 mins, start to finish. The real question is why? In the seven years that I have owned my EL I have replaced the switch no less than four times!
Just remove the clip holding the pin and withdraw the pin far enough to drop the switch out. When you get the new one you will notice that on one side is a slot and on the other a hole for the pin. It will become obvious when you see it.
Be prepared to replace this switch once every couple of years!
