brake light "sticks"

949 Views 6 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  sanchez

My brake light seems to stay on all the time and I believe it has to do with my rear brake. It seems that when I press it, the brake light doesn't turn off, but when I pull on the brake with my hand hard enough I can get it to turn off. Is there something that can be adjusted so that it's not as sensitive?

Down by the shifter, follow the brake linkage (press on brake lever, you'll see the linkage move on the opposite side) and you'll see a spring going to a plastic bolt looking thing. That is the brake light switch, you can adjust if by turning the nut on it, you should be able to do it by hand by pulling up a little on the body to turn the nut.
