    Default cleaning/replacing hazard light switch

    I'd like to clean/replace a stuck hazard light switch on my BX 2230. How do I access the switches? I'd rather not have to take it to a dealer for such a minor repair, but I will if it's something that's difficult to do.

    if the bx2230 is the same as 50 series, The easiest way to see everything is to remove the plastic panel. I would remove the vent screen, steering wheel, take 4 or 6 bolts that holds the plastic panel in place and then pull out. You should be able to see everything on the other side where hazard switch.

    If you pull the lower dash screen, you can see all of the wiring and the back of the switch..Shouldn't be a big deal. Mine go off if when I wash it. i just pull the power wire for the night and all is good again..Would be nice if kubota came out with a replacement that worked for this..it appears this has been a long term issue.

    The switches are easy to get out and service. Just remove the cover below the dash and push them out from below. With a little care, they can be disassembled and cleaned. I've had a couple of mine apart, blown them out and sprayed them with some WD40 and put them back together. The issue I've noticed is that they are not well weather sealed.

    Don't forget to disconnect your battery before poking around behind the dash!

    I replaced mine on the BX2230 and they were a little better than the old ones. After you remove switch by pushing the tabs together you can pop it apart carefully without loosing contacts and springs. I just put dielectric grease in mine so the water will not collect and short them out.
