Just failed the mot on brake lights being out.
They do work, but they are temperamental, someone workingng some not, flickng on and off while pedal depressed, and it's all 3 of the lights together so I'm imagining it's the pedal sensor?? Any other thoughts or suggestions and where is the pedal sensor anyway?

Brake light switch on top of the brake pedal. Twist and pull to remove it.

Thanks Alex, picked up a new switch, the old one came out OK, but new one was an utter pig, bent the air distributed plastic holy thing out the way for access but new switch simply would not turn to lock in. Old one went in and out OK. New ones ears were too big, were bigger and had some extra flash on them, poorly made. Eventually one ear snapped off trying to turn the switch. Took apart old switch, cleaned and regreased, popped it back in, problem solved. 17 quid of shite being returned to Porsche
