Default Changing the brake switch

Need to change the brake switch on my 407 (2.0hdi)

I was experiencing the ESP fault when braking with the cruise control on.

I've sourced a new switch and I hope to fit it this weekend.

Anyone fitted one of these and can give me any pointers before I go crawling in to the foot well on my back

Cheers

Ben

Should only take 10 mins.... think they just screw in, or turn 1/4 turn and put in

The green one is what you need. rotate it some 1/4 like jmkent said i think in ccw direction. while there, see if you have that one free plug to the right of it like i do. im very curious about what its supposed to do,

Hm did a bit of digging myself and that would appear to be the plug for extra switch on gas pedal for speed limiter.

Changed it earlier, soon realised that stupid Peugeot had fitted a brake bar across to the passenger side which is where i found the swtich

Didn't see the plug you mentioned, but I took a picture anyway. My setup looks a lot diffrerent to yours?!

Regardless, an easy fix

ah yeah thats due to whole left side/right side drive. i would guess that plug is next to throttle pedal for you. tnx anyway. im pretty sure thats additional plug for the throttle pedal with limiter switch so mystery solved.
