This is the 2nd new switch on the proton pack that sits under the crank gen
uses a super cheap easily available switch (KCD3) -not an ACDC tribute band...
You can take apart the original switch by simply inserting 2 thin shims (plectrums, playing cards, butter knife) on either side to release the tabs or a Stanley knife either side to cut tabs off, then all you need is the metal parts and the housing.
There are 2 versions of the lever depending on what the internals of your switch look like, one type will have a spring with a cap on, this is the spring pin file you will need to trim the spring to fit, the other version is for the type with a spring and a foot type connector, no modification needed, just put the spring in the hole.
You need a pin of some sort that is 10mm long and 2.5mm – 3mm wide (don’t use anything thinner as the switch might not lock into position)

Here are links to buy the switch (note: UK LINKS and there may be cheaper ones on these sites and others, links just to illustrate availability) just search KCD3 and go for the 2 pole on/off version (3 pin also fine)
