Ian, The issue is - or rather was, - that the replacement aftermarket switches are not as well made as the originals. They work OK at first, but don't last. They cannot take the current, the terminals degrade and they then get slower and slower to make the circuit. Eventually they pack up.
I replaced an original switch (failed after 35 years) with a new one that lasted about 1 year. Aft...
No experience of Falcon, I have just replaced mine as they were very old also. I also will expect to be changing on account of age rather than milage so went for part worns. £15 each fitted and are all pairs and not a budget brand. Paul.
I rarely just press the brake pedal. Usually, and I think now almost involuntarily, I "dab" the pedal momentarily before then applying the brakes. Comes from years of driving old bangers when one needed the extra confidence that there was still something connected to the brake pedal. But nowadays its more about waking up the driver behind!
