How do you replace the brake light activation switch on a 1995 thunder-bird?

The brake light activation switch should be located under the brake pedal shaft. the replacement is to disconnect the negative post on the battery. (a good thing to do with any electrical work). a washer and nut usually connect it to a mounting bracket. remove them and the switch should back out. get the new switch and check the connections. remove the connections, it can be one or two. put the new switch back in place. notes. i have seen some problems were not the switch but the brake pedal shaft and the switch are not lined up properly. also check the fuse for the brakes. hope it helps. duboff
