I think most of them do that now. I’ve got one on the shelf that won’t lock back into place, plus my replacement is now taped up and a 50k mint original I look after is taped up too 🤣

hi. 

for some strange reason i cannot reply direct on your post ?

anyway.  the switch not staying in is a common one as usually they only get tried once a year for the mot.

all mine have done the same.

be patient. its just the internals getting sticky through lack of use.a little wd and some vicous prodding / tapping always got mine to work properly. easier with  the red knob removed .

sorry if you have already tried this a million times but it does work on my 2

no longer required switch has fixed itself but have wd40 it to make sure cheers cam.in.head

Yeah, it’s pretty amazing the amount of gunk that does ingress over the years. If possible remove and manipulate the angles whilst spraying good aerosol contact cleaner into the switch to flush it out works.  WD40 even do a special version now ! Just about double what it can be purcgased for from Farnell etc.

For initial cleaning of bits like this I use carb cleaner or brake cleaner. It lifts the grim and floats it away. When it’s evaporated 30 seconds later I spray with WD40 or PTFE spray.
