Having the right equipment and reference literature makes such a difference. Circuit tester + switch legend from the service manual pointed straight away to an issue with the red and brown wires so it was then just a matter of removing the switch to see what joys/horrors awaited me! As someone has kindly posted a diagram of where each wire goes on the underside of the switch for this model, it's now just a matter of cleaning them up and soldering back on.

Oh, and fitting some of DEET's silver/grey sleeving should finish the job off nicely!

I have the perfect tool for the job! I use it every time I have a wire pulled off the switch base!

I really ought to learn to solder. However, I've got an old mate in our village who's more than happy to pop in, have a chat and do it for me.
