    Does euro car parts do this switch as I rang them with the part number but they can't find it, they asked me what colour mine is which I don't know as I'm at work

    Awesome guide. I used this to replace the switch but still have no brake lights and still have the flashing glow plug light

    I have changed the bulbs and checked the fuse

    The LED strip brake light is lit all the time yet is much brighter when the brake pedal is pressed

    Any ideas? I don't know what to try next

    **EDIT**

    Problem now solved!! Turns out the bulb holder had shorted. So if anyone else has this problem inspect the bulb holders :)

    Great guide and loved the pictures. :D Made the whole job of finding the screw positions and removing the lower panel a breeze. It made it a lot easier than it looked. Had a problem with the brake lights not coming on until I pressed the pedal quite a bit. But after removing and re-seating the brake light switch, they come on sooner, perfect. No new switch needed this time :)
