PTT switch req'd

Our club has a Suzuki DF140 controlled by a side mount NA27s box. The trim switch is not working in the up position and I have traced it to a faulty switch on the throttle control. Is this part available as a spare and is it an easy repair?

Any help greatly appreciated.

Should be, it'll just be a micro switch. Only way to tell is to contact dealer who can check parts list. Try Ardoran Marine Suzuki Accessories - Ardoran Marine

On my merc control box I just removed the switch, pryed it apart, cleaned up the contacts with fine wet and dry used a quick squirt of WD 40 and its been fine every since. However the Merc swith was designed to be dismantled and cleaned.

It certainly saved me a good 20 and the hassle of getting the right one etc, I think its worth a try in the first place.

Good luck
Dave

Hi Dave,
Thanks for the suggestion however this switch just doesn't "feel" right in the up position. I think it's more than just dirty contacts.

Would anyone have a part number for the switch, or even better, be able to supply one?

There's one on ebay (old part number) for about 50 inc delivery:

A UK dealer will probably be cheaper. That's still strikes me as being very expensive. I replaced one which looked identical to this on a Tohatsu control box recently and the replacement switch was less than 10 from a dealer!

bazza, the switch may just be gummed up, even if you can't dismantle it try working some Wd40 into it.

The switch on ebay seems different from the one on the rib . The original has a plug on the end of the wires where as the one on ebay is individual push connectors.

Hi Milgrip, the switch clicks on the down position but is just a "wobbly mess" on the up. It doesn't look very easy to get into either.

Why is nothing simple?
