Actually in his situation the switch is working because he stated the lights are diming when he presses the switch. so it is probably the slide or the sissor assembly.


A round shaft will stick up thru the metal unit that you are trying to attach the shft to. To peen it over you use a ball peen hammer

Use the rounded end to shape the shaft into a rounded over section that tightly holds the shaft to the metal plate.

The shaft as it comes thru the metal will now have a rivet shape.


The picture shows the rivet shaft going thru the metal and the rivet then peened over to attach it.
