after having a motorcyclist warn me yesterday that my brake lights didnt seem to be working i have started to investigate what the problem is and i think Ive figured it out but throught id run it past you lot before purchasing parts.
The car is a 1966 mk1 and the problem is that the brake lights only seem to work when the pedal is pushed hard all the way down, under normal/light braking the lights dont operate at all. Im asuming the cause of this is a faulty brake light switch which is situated in the brake line on the front subframe.
Heres a link to the part http://minispares.com/Product.aspx?pid=36731
So does the problem im experiencing sound like faulty switch? and if so is replacing the switch easy? When i undo the switch will this cause brake fluid to leak out and will i have to bleed the system?
