Lucas Light Switch on an A7
« on: 23.10. 2016 19:56 »
I have a 1955 A7, which has a Lucas light switch in the head lamp unit (known as the divers helmet)

The previous owner fitted it with some sort of silicon adhesive because the spring clip is missing. I've had to remove it for rewiring. Does any body know how I can secure the light switch without the clip?

Silicone again. Or a new clip;

Big chance a tube of silicone would cost you more... *smile*

I used a cable tie on mine  *work* a tie of the correct width will locate in the slots cut in the switch body so not slide off.
