Metho should do, keep them dry. A bit of grease (silicon grease if you have it) on the plungers and pivot area should do.

thanks Snap. ahve already done the metho bit ... was wondering what should put on the switch contacts [electricial side] .... didn't think of the silicon where mentioned :?

swapped the main switch drivers side with one single from a wreck. didn't know they were a seperate switch .. so that was a bonus :mrgreen:

The contacts, plungers and so on are interchangeable between the single and multi switches.

Just don't use what I've seen over the years - cut off roofing nail tips :shock:
