A WD40 product that really worked

I was having problems with indicators on Williams 5a - one side worked the other didn't but hazards were fine (even with flasher cans swapped) so it had to be the indicator switch. I sprayed some wd40 electrical contact cleaner on the switch and operated the switch a few times and suddenly both indicators worked. I'll try it next on an electric window switch on OPJ.

It's very handy for cleaning things like that, especially spraying it through a straw nozzle thing. Propanol and butane!
