Morning,I undid the dash,but could only pull it forward a couple of inched.So I was unable to see the back of the switch,I manage to get my meter probes onto it,which showed it wasn`t working .Strange,since its such a simple switch Len

I think you will find its secured by a brass nut behind the metal dash panel. Just a thought as it is just a simple switch, would spraying switch cleaner on the switch clean the contacts?

Since I have to try to undo the switch by feel,as I cannot see it properly,have you any idea what size spanner is needed.Rather than trying to get a spanner to fit blind Len
