And thanks again - brake light warning on dashboard. Check bulbs and fuses. No joy so I tried the Forum. A few squirts of WD40 and all seems OK. :wub:

fonty, even if the wd40 works, its a good idea to replace the brake switch, £7ish from GSF, 10 min job, saves future problems

I'm sorry to sound stupid, but I don't see the switch!
Do I have to remove anything?
How far up is the switch. and what does it look like, colour and size, for instance?

cheers
