    My car is a Paris built car and the brake light switch is mechanical and actuated by a rod and spring and sits on the body down under the manifold, roughly below the carburettor, I don’t know about Slough built cars.

    mine is a mechanical switch mounted on the firewall, drivers side, above the brake pedal under the steering column. there is a short spring attached to both the pedal and the switch; when the pedal is depressed the spring tugs on the plunger of the switch and the lights illuminate. you adjust the spring so they come on when it is lightly pressed... adjustment by twisting the sping to make it shorter or longer!
