Brake Light switch replacement/Adjustment

I need to replace/adjust my brake light switch. Anyone have any pointers?
Any help would be great.
Thanks

Removal
Remove the steering column and the knee protector covers
Push down hard on the brake pedal, and at the same time turn the switch assembly counterclockwise 1/4 to 1/2 a turn and remove the switch
Remove wiring harness

Testing switch

Pull plunger all the way out
Test for continuity between two terminals nearest the plunger, none =replace switch
Push plunger all the way in
Test continuity between the two terminals furthest away from the plunger, none =replace switch

Replacing
Replacing switch is the opposite of removal but pull out the plunger all the way. Once its installed pull the brake pedal as far up as you can. You should hear that ratcheting sound as the switch adjusts itself.

Thanks
I just finished it up a little bit ago. Didn't take much more than 45 min.
Pretty straight forward
