Hello Boys and Girls

My handbrake light is very intermittent and sometimes flickers when the handbrake is applied, I guess its the microswitch playing up. The question is, does anyone know how to get to it?

Best Regards

Mark

You remove the front cover to get to the parking switch ,Page 2_14 of the service manual.It take some time to do the removal.A better part of the day.A service manual would serve you well. Best to live with it until you need to work on other things like steering bearings .

If you're talking about the parking brake light, simply remove the right dash pocket and spray the switch with some contact/electrical cleaner. Easy to get to and takes less than 5 minutes.

Mine did the same thing when I bought it...

otbiker is correct in accessing the switch by the right cover box.I don't no why the Honda service manual calls to remove the front cover other then to remove the hand brake completely.
