A little strange as they tend to last for a while .. it was dirt ingress that used to kill them over time untill they were modified and a recall issued .

These days it tends to be dirt ingress that kills them !

Maybe the plate bolt has come loose or the locateing peg on the plate didnt go in properly and the plate has twisted .


I find these days that i always depress the clutch when starting a car what ever model it is so a switch is not really needed .
