Yes, the switch itself cannot be fixed. You might try Louis Mintrone at usedcbxparts@hotmail.com.

Tazz, the switch can leak from one of two places: either around the threads or from near the top where the wire attaches. For the threads, you can use a thread sealer when you install the switch. (A teflon tape or sealer such as Permatex.) There is nothing you can do for the top of the switch. When you install the switch, do not tighten too robustly. I would suggest approx 10 lbs-ft (12 - 15 Nm) torque

Catch me if I'm out of focus, guys!
