To engage the right indicators on my S30 requires and extra 'tug' on the arm of the switch. I've pulled it apart - but unfortunately didn't take photos - and it appears the contact points are worn. They are similar in appearance to distributor contact points.

 

I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions how I could either build up the worn/pitted contacts, e.g. silver solder(?) or, modify the mechanism to gain more movement, e.g bigger ball, stretch spring?

 

Thanks

 

(edit) There are some images here but it is of an earlier 4 contact switch whereas mine is the later 2 contact version.
