Talking Brake switch broke

Yesterday I notice my tail lights wouldn't turn off I made sure the lights were off, fused was ok just the tail lights wouldn't turn off so I went to youtube and saw a video of fixing this problem with a PENNY and a DIME!!! All you have to do crazy glue the penny and dime together after drying glue the penny to brake assembly and dime would touch the switch making the tail lights turn off when not pressing the brake cheap and easy fix

Default Brake light

Same thing happened to me 2 weeks ago. The plastic "peg" that sits in brake pedal had fallen apart, making my brake lights stay on. I could not find another peg to fill the hole, so I used a sheet metal clip to cover the hole. After adjusting the switch (unhook the wiring connector first, don't twist the wires), I found the switch was faulty, intermittant. A trip to the parts store and 6 bucks later, a few adjustments, brake light issue was fixed. Glad I had converted to LEDs on my brake lights, they pull so few amps, that otherwise they might have drained my battery. Bring some patience, there is not alot of room under there, I don't think fumbling around under there with coins and super glue will be any easier than doing the job right.

Double check me, but this should be the right one.
