    Brake Switch on pedal

    My 87 CSX has a weak clip that is used for auto adjusting of the stop lamp .
    Any suggestions for a possible fix? I was going to remove and bend slightly.

    Did you ever get this solved? I cannibalized the switch out of CSX #42 for the SL, and I'd like to get it back on the road...

    Yes I cleaned it up and now works fine, I assume a bit of oil or grease prevented it from working correctly.
    Funny later today I will be adjusting it again as I replace the booster. Hopefully back on the road later today

    Hopefully I can get one of mine to behave. I think I have a couple in the basement. If not, off to the yard I go!
