    Found the part on the website with no problem at all. It showed which models it would fit so there was no worry on that score. When it came it was exactly as described, well made and fit well.

      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!

  • Q on my flymo switch pictured above, there is a little yellow box connected to it, it looks like itcould be a fuse? However there isnt one of these shown on the above, I cant see how to get it off of the old switch to put on the new? Please advise 1 Answer

      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.

  • Q I have four wires, 2black from plug on mower and the blue & brown to the power 1 Answer

    on the new switch it has two scews for the power wires,but only four holes with metal behind two for the capacitor whic I managed to put in but it is impossible to push in the two black wires from the mower plug.

      Hi again reetpetite, the four holes without screws have a clasp mechanism inside them; the wires from the mower plug retainer pin should slot in and fix in to place. If they don't, the switch might be defective.
