Brake Light Switch Location?

Okay, I know I'm not the smartest out there, but I also know i'm not the dummest.

My wife's Nav won't shift out of park easily, and when following her, i noticed her brake lites don't always lite up...classic switch issue.

I bought a new switch, but cannot figure out where the old one is, does anybody know where the brake light switch is on these cars?

Thanks!

Follow the brake peddle assy up . If it has adj. peddles it will be diffrent . Look for the actuator for the booster under the dash . It should be visable from there .

Should be mounted to the brake pedal assembly bracket, I believe it has a plug with 4 wires going to it.

Careful when replacing it.

Removal

1.Disconnect the stoplamp switch electrical connector.
2.NOTE: The stoplamp switch will be difficult to remove if the switch plunger is not depressed. A slight rearward force should be adequate to depress the plunger.

With a light force (approximately 1-4 N [1-3 lb]), pull rearward on the brake pedal, rotate the stoplamp switch 45 degrees clockwise and remove the stoplamp switch.
Installation

CAUTION: It is very important to not press, pull or touch the brake pedal assembly during the installation of the stoplamp switch. Failure to follow these instructions may damage the stoplamp switch.

1.Without movement to the brake pedal assembly, install the stoplamp switch and rotate 45 degrees counterclockwise.
2.Connect the stoplamp switch electrical connector.

Follow the brake pedal up under the dash, where it connects to the adjustable pedal bracket, look just to the left of it, there will be grayish plug with a white wiring harness that has 4 wires going to it.

Can't miss it.

See photo.

Looks totally wrong and part number doesn't correspond to Navigator or Expeditions.

How much was it at Rock Auto? The OEM switch is only $28 from Tasca.

Should lool like this.
