Is it possible to remove and replace the hydraulic brake switch located at
the five way connector on a TR3 with out having to bleed the brake system? I
was told that if you do not press the brake pedal and quickly swap them it
can be done with out having to bleed the system.
I've done this on a '62 Herald, where the switch sticks out the side of the
four-way (or however many ways) connector. Had to rush, having discovered just
before a scheduled State inspection that I had no brake lights due to one of
the connectors having broken off the then 40-year-old original switch. Stole
an original 42-year-old switch off a junk Herald in the yard, swapped it on
quickly, and passed inspection with fine brakes. ;-)
In other words, YES!
