Hello folks

Steuggled with the switch in the wifes Mg today. Tried to remove it whislt mounted in the car on the inner fender

It was so tightly fitted that I worried the torque from my efforts to remove it would bend the brake pipes.

I made this tool and fit it over the switch to be able to hold the brake junction block on place whilst using a wrench on the switch.

It worked a treat. Hope this assists someone.
