Looking for a kick down switch for 1972 280SE W108

The actual switch portion of my kick down mechanism only provides connectivity if pressed very hard when out of the car. The throttle linkage does not press hard enough on the switch to make the connection and I'm hoping someone here may have a spare they'd be willing to part with. I believe the part number is A-000-545-1706 and no longer available.

Thanks,

Bill

I am parting a 1969 280s. If tell me if it's the same, I can pull it.

EPC Net shows they are the same part assuming your's is a US Spec 280S. What do you want for it?

I am sorry, but the kick down in my 1969 280s looked so rusty on the inside that I could not believe it would work. I sadly did not check this tread before scrapping the car yesterday. I'm sorry. Kit really would have been a miracle if someone could have made mine work.
