    Saved my son the price of a new mower by intercepting the existing one on its way to the council recycling park. I hate throwing anything away until I am convinced that it's beyond economical repair so the price of a replacement switch made purchase a no-brainer. I removed the back of the faulty switch in order to release the cable connections and the capacitor but assembly was simple and quick.

    Selecting the right part through the online parts store was very straight forward. Part delivered next day, part was as described and fitted perfectly. Looks identical to the original (broken) part - popped the old item out and the new one went straight in. Saved a heap by not having to buy a new lawnmower!

    Well after having the lawnmower die half way through the lawn I diagnosed it to the switch. Easily fitted with just the use of a Phillips screw driver and a small flat screw driver to aid removal of clamped wires. Easily re-installed and assembled with minimal skill required, mower now works OK.

      Actually I found the best way to remove the two wires was to prise the back off the switch (doesn't matter if you wreck it). It is then a simple matter of removing the clips securing the wires and pulling them out intact. This way, there is no danger of damaging the solder tags on the ends of the wires, which are useful when refitting. To refit, simply push the wires into the appropriate holes in the new switch and they will latch. Same for the capacitor.

      The way I removed the wire from the old switch was to push a pin into the hole beside the wire and pull. The wires are held inside the switch by a simple spring mechanism!

      This is an anti interference capacitor. Many people have posted comments on the best way to change the switch is to break the old switch open. This would release the capacitor to fit on the new switch.

      We have a video :How to replace a Flymo switch box but a more useful video :How to replace a lawnmower switch - Bosch will show how to connect the wires to the switch. Note it can be difficult to remove the wires from the old switch, It may be easier to 'smash' the old switch to release the cables, take photo's first to show wiring details.
