BAS light on 1998 E320: Where's the darn stop lamp switch?

Hi all:

The BAS light on my car stays on after the car's started.

I've found that if i press down on the brake and then start up the car, the BAS doesn't light up. But as soon as i let go the brake, the light pops right back.

I've decided to replace the stop lamp switch. But after opening up the dash cover on my e320, I can't find any brake switch behind the brake pad. Does anyone know where exactly it is?

I've managed to connect an Actron CP9135 OBD II auto scanner to my car so i can read out the codes. The scanner reads: "Pass No Codes Returned". I'm assuming that means there aren't any significant sensor malfunctions that might cause the BAS light to turn on. But i'm not very sure.

Any ideas?

okay, nevermind. I replaced the stop lamp switch and everything is fine now!

One quick question: I try to fully extend the plunger and then insert it, but the plunger seems to be depressed a bit when i plugged it into the housing. Is this normal?
