    The switch sits actually before the pedal (towards you) and closes the contact when the pin moves outwards (when you press the pedal).
    If it was the other way around you would need quite a long movement of the pin. And when you bleed the brakes you require more leverage.

    I heard stories of hydraulic switches popping out. That aside I feel that any fitting I can take out of the brake system can only be benficial.
    My switch was approx GBP8, and I fit it later this week. It still needs a small bracket.

    I fitted a hydraulic switch which is fine ,it is hardly fair to blame a poor location for the switch failing, lots of cars have hyd brake switches and they are fine, not any less reliable than a micro switch.
