Title: C15 lighting switch
Post by: TIGER on 17 April, 2017, 23:06:25
Just completed rewire.
I think the switch is not making contact.
Can these be opened up for repair ??
Otherwise more expense.
Too far to turn back now.
Regards

These switches are essentially crimped together - the zinc alloy body will probably crack if you attempt to straighten it to dismantle or attempt to recrimp it on reassembly.

If you do attempt it I would suggest do it with switch in a plastic bag to contain the bits which may spring out when you open it up!

You could test its internal continuity, using the bike wiring diagram, before buying a new one.

Thanks Julian
It appears that the switch is good but the plug is the problem, replacement on order.
