    The stop light switch and bracket is located behind the brake pedal on the brake pedal support. It is held in by one screw. After replacing, adjust as follows: Push switch through clip in mounting bracket until switch seats in bracket. Brake pedal will move forward slightly.
    Pull brake pedal rearward as far as it will go Pedal tang will "ratchet" switch to correct position as pedal is pulled rearward.
    Verify that stop light switch does not prevent full pedal return. Incomplete return will cause brake drag and premature wear.
