Re: Reverse light switch, help replacing!

The help would have been great but i'm now in cardiff! need to update some details i think...


Do i just unscrew it and attach and attach the wires to the new switch?
Also, the bolt for the switch in the picture in a lot bigger than the new one i've bought, anyone else had that or have i bought the wrong part you think?

Re: Reverse light switch, help replacing!

the reverse switch I bought for mine had a longer thread on it, BUT that's better as it will make sure that the switch will work, mine was smaller originally and would randomly switch the lights on, but now I have them all the time
