Brake Lights Constantly On

Hey all,

Iv'e recently been having problems with the brake lights constantly on,

I'm assuming it's the microswitch because when I lift the pedal towards me the brake lights turn off,

I suspect there are 2 of them and one is okay, but the other is not, because they don't make the click sound together, I am guessing I just need something to push the pedal outwards to me like a rubber, but than again I am not totally sure about anything because I can't seem to get my eyes on it...!

I just can't find where exactly the click comes from upper of the brake pedal, been laying under it for a while - do I have to take the entire plastic part under my wheel as well (requires some screw drivers which I don't have) or is there another way to reach it?

(By the way it's a 2008 Punto Grande 1400 Manual Active)

Thanks!

Re: Brake Lights Constantly On

Brake light switch is about 10 on ebay.Lots of different types so you need to look at it and match it up with photos.
10 seconds to remove and refit- just twist and pull. But fiddly as you have to be upside sown under the steering column.

On older punto's, you can pull the black plunger down with pliers, while pedal is down,then let go of brake pedal,and it's set in correct position,some one may confirm it works on GP's,or worth a try.

Re: Brake Lights Constantly On

Came across this on a Ford Sierra a few years ago. Replaced the switch on the brake pedal and problem solved. It is fiddly while on your back under the dash but it's easy to do.
