Microswitch Replacement on Parking Brake

Recommended Posts

Hello, Members:

I am having conv. top issues and have read on the forums about the Brake Lite condition. Mine works on start up but does not go on when handle is pulled. I need to replace the microswitch.

Can someone direct me where I can find the info on removing the console area and how to replace the switch in question at the handle?

Many thanks!

Ed

Ed:

The fact that the Brake Light goes on at start up only indicates that the light bulb is not burned out. Until you change it, you may be able to "revive" your microswitch by pulling up very slowly in the range of motion of the brake handle and seeing if it lights at any point. Or, move the handle rapidly up and down a few times. That might allow you to operate your top while you wait to get the new part so you don't miss any nice days with the top down!

When you are ready to do the repair, try this link: http://www.bombaydigital.com/boxster/proje...g_brake_switch/

It is pretty comprehensive and has clear photos.

Good Luck!

Regards, Maurice.

Thanks for the info. I have the part ordered from local dealer. The switch is now operating (with gentle pull on handle), so your advice is correct.
