    Hello to all. Hope all are save from this madness.

    Its been a week that i became the owner of a Wonderful HSE. I already Upgraded the breather to a oil separator, blanked the EGR. and change the front drop links (the front left was making clonk), by the way are there drop links on the rear?
    But i have one issue, the brake lights are always on. I look under in the pedals and i see 2 switches...
    do you know witch one i have to replace?
    My FL has the nav single din...some how it doesn't work i have checked the fuses and they are all good. it comes with a Nokia base and micro maybe its something wrong in the back. (if anyone can give me some guidance to fix it, Many Thanks. How is with this SAT NAV? i know the car has a CD box under the driver seat, but it also opens the panel, should it have a nav cd inside?

    Many thanks to all. This is a wonderful forum

    on your pic .. the white one be the brake switch
    i.e. if your brake lights be stuck on .. that be the likely culprit
    [ looks like the original type .. best to replace it with the upgrade ]

    other one in pic be sort of familiar ..
    looks like the one i had to move to install the brake-light switch
    i did try to figure what the other be for ..
    all i got that it were possibly something to do with a hall effect sensor

    and maybe be a part of the wiring meant for optional extras [ or maybe not ]
    as ppl often find elec. connectors that mysteriously don't connect to 'owt

    ```````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````
    maybe there's related info in the workshop .pdf file :

    1st link be the original type

    2nd .
    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/LAND-ROVER-FREELANDER-1-OEM-BRAKE-LIGHT-PEDAL-MODIFIED-SWITCH-XKB500120/371795987695?ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

    be the upgraded switch ..

    do note from link ..
    '' PLEASE NOTE LINK LEAD YMQ503280 MAY ALSO BE REQUIRED ''

    `````````````````````````
    if you were to buy a new b.switch from a LR-dealership parts dept.
    you'd get the upgraded switch + the needed wiring lead connector part
