De la part de Tony Lum
The newer ones have a square body and are easier to disassemble and
clean. The old round style is held together by 800 (just kidding ;)
interlocking teeth and are a bitch to get apart. Once apart, you clean the
switch contacts with DeOxit5 or similar, then clean and lube (I use
silicone vacuum grease) the O ring on the plunger. I've seen 100 ohms on
the switch contacts. Should be < 0.5 ohms.
So before kneeling in the snow, head first under the dash, to remove these
nasty little gems, I guess I must measure the resistance first? :-)
Do you know if the vacuum part goes bad also?
Expecting 20cm of fresh snow tonite... I guess I won't need the cruise
control soon :-)
