Brake pressure switch

Anyone ever change one? The part number said it included sealent. I'm assumming it unscrews, apply the sealent and screw it back in. Then bleed the brakes.

If no replies, I'll let you all know what happened when the part arrives.

Re: Brake pressure switch

Got the new switch. Took the old one off (un-screwed out of junction block). Put some teflon tape on the threads and tightened it up. The terminals on the top were different than the stocker. I modified some electrical connectors to go between the switch and the female plug. Everything works great now. The only air in the system is the little pocket in the switch. After I drive it for a bit I'll bleed the brakes. Not sure how the fluid would push that air out right now. I'll wait for the mush in the pedal then do it.

Lossen the switch a little. Maybe an 1/8 of a turn. Press the brake pedal and hold. Some fluid should come out around the threads of the switch. Tighten the switch before releasing the brake pedal. Again, tighten the switch before releasing the brake pedal. If you don't you will draw air into the system. This should save you from a total brake system bleed.

Re: Brake pressure switch

Should be on the inside of the driver side frame rail just in front of the shifter linkage. Check it to see if a mud ball or stick knocked it loose. Had the same problem, pushed it back on and problem fixed.

Re: Brake pressure switch

Mine is acting up... What's the local dealer price on the switch? Looks like about $14 online if it's the right one...
