DFW Guys- Good Mopar mechanic?

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by 66Newport, Jun 5, 2012.

  1. Guys, I am having some issues with my brakelight switch, does anyone know of a good mopar mechanic around the Denton area? Any help please.
  2. What car is this on? Mopar brakelight switches aren't that complex, maybe we can talk you through it . . .
  3. My '66 Newport. I have messed with it to the point I am ready to sell the dang thing.
  4. look something like this?

    My 48 plymouth has a column and brake pedal arrangement out of a 65ish Dart / Valiant type car (I think) that had a brake switch that looked like that. I got frustrated with it and replaced it with a swith for a 68 Polara that is threaded for adjustment. I had to drill out the hole a little larger but it was an easy change. The one I used was a BWD S237 from O'Reilly Auto.

    Wow Shady Shores...I use to live on Redbud street. :) would be a shame to give up on a car because of a brake switch.
  9. My brake light used to stick, found out that the bracket holding the switch on was broken. easy fix.
  10. Thanks Coryw, I think that might work, i will look into it.
