  4.  
  5. Remove the switch from the brake pedal.
  6.  

To install:

  1. Insert the new switch and loosely install the locknut.
  2.  
  3. Adjust the switch so the pedal, in its at-rest position, holds the plunger at the tip of the switch in.
  4.  

Remember that the pedal holds the switch off; therefore, the brake lamps come on when the pedal moves away from the switch.

  1. Once positioned, tighten the locknut and connect the wiring.
  2.  
  3. Check the switch function by pressing the pedal. Have an assistant observe the brake lamps for proper operation.
