Hi everyone the micro switch on my sun visor on my Merc W211 E320CDi has gone on the blink. The garage did not want to know and all garages want to do is charge me £145 to replace the sun visor. I have taken the visor apart and found out it is the small blue micro switch that is faulty. As this is my second one to go faulty I am determined to fix it myself. Can anyone advise me where I could get a replacement microswitch. Hopefully below is a picture of the microswitch.

Any help would be very much appreciated
