Hi All,

I found that my TGPI switch has a melted spring which is preventing my neutral light from turning on. Does anyone have a broken TGPI switch with at least one good contact spring? Please see below for pictures of one of the good springs.

Thanks,
TJ

I've pulled replacement springs out of lighters, pens, old switches and electrical gizmos over the years.
Regards Martin.

Bump^^ If anyone has one of these broken switches, I'm still interested. I haven't been able to find a spring small enough for this application.

It looks very close to a BIC lighter spring in size. If I had one to pull apart I'd check.
Regards Martin.

Bic's have a good quality spring too. It is used the keep the flint against the striker wheel if you were wondering where the spring in a lighter is.
Also you maybe able to find an assortment of spring to buy.
