    If you need a new positioning lever for a Bosch Rotak 340ER lawnmower, then buy the part No ES1118186, It is exactly the same as the one you require, though the website will have you believe it' Not compatible, IT IS ! It's just black instead of red. Before purchasing i phoned E Spares to ask about compatibility, they said .. . It wasn't, but i knew from the pictures it looked correct, so i bought it anyway, and i'm very glad i did. Easy to fit and prompt delivery. Now my wife can cut the grass !!

    When this arrived, it turned out to be exactly the thing that I wanted, but it isn't a "positioning lever". It is in fact part of the power switch. At any rate, that's how it is used in my lawn mower, which has a typical safety interlock system that won't let you turn the power on unless you have also pressed a big red button.

    I was looking for a new lever for my lawn mower and espares came up trumps. I was really pleased that you could still buy this lever even though my mower is over 10 years old. Ordering on the website was straight forward and the lever arrived within a couple of days. The hints on how to remove the old lever was very useful as well.

      As Jimdee says, if you look down the side of where the round part of the handle fits over the 'spindle' on the outer casing, you'll see a tiny 'nipple' that you can push in with a screwdriver as you ease off the handle.

      Yes, the old handle is well bedded in and needs a gentle lever out with a flat bladed screwdriver. Also, watch out for the spring loaded red safety button on the positioning lever. Keep your free hand over it when you lever the old lever off just in case it bounces off and is lost.

      The outer casing has a little "nipple" which engages with the cylinder part of the lever and you should gently with a screwdriver prise outwards the casing to allow the cylinder to come up and out of the pillar on which it rotates.

  • Q Am I missing a part? 1 Answer

    Tried installing replacement lever handle. When in closed position the handle presses against a thin metal strip and causes it to arc, but this does not appear to touch anything else to complete the circuit and so start the mower. Is there another metal strip/contact I should have? Has something dislodged? Any advice would be useful.
