Brake lights always on

My rear brake lights are always on even when ignition is off. Brakes seem fine and fluid is topped up. Am I looking at an electrical fault?

I see the issue. A little plastic bump on the upper pedal has disintegrated so the switch fails to turn off.

Did you find a genuine replacement? I got a mate to turn up a bit of nylon that fit in there and works a charm.

Yes they are plentiful, for example on ebay. Seems the same part was used for many cars over decades.
