Megane brake lights not working

I have a Renault Megane Estate 54 reg, and the brake lights are not working. My husband has changed the bulbs and checked the fuses, but all are ok. I have read on some sites that there is a brake switch near to the brake pedal, but I cannot find it. I can find a switch above the clutch, and don't want to mess with it for obvious reasons. Does anyone know where to find the switch for the brakes? Thanks

Try looking up inside the passenger footwell.

Hi thanks for that. I did look up under the dashboard, and have pulled the carpet back but to be honest I really don't know what I am looking for

Re: Megane brake lights not working

Most brake light switches are the plonger type and will be close to a moving part of the brake linkage.

Have a hunt on good old fleabay - you should find a picture of one.

Yes the brake switch is always usually by the moving part of the brake on most cars I've saw
