handbrake warning light switch

Post by kenv » Fri Jun 07, 2019 5:45 pm

Afternoon gentlemen, can someone advise what they've used on the handbrake bracket to deal with the handbrake on warning light. I got an MGB GT one, which is too big to fit in the hole, even if opened out?
Regards
Ken

Got mine from RS components, don't think they do the same one now. Measure the hole and give them a call. From memory it was something like 7mm but don't quote me. Needs to be normally closed so contact is made when the handbrake lever is off its seat.

Not sure if this helps but I bought this £14.29, it was an exact replacement for my damaged one
