brake light switch

Don't know if anyone else has noticed a similar problem....when I press the brake peddle gently in slow moving traffic the brake lights don't come on. I have to press the peddle to the point where I'm braking much harder before they illuminate.
There doesnt seem to be any adjustment on the switch itself above the peddle should I just replace it or is this normal behaviour !

It's not normal - mine brake light comes on with very light pressure.

Usually there is an adjustment but I've never looked at the 156 switch.

I agree with Pascs.
Mine is fine too, brake light comes on just before the brakes do.
Looking at the workshop CD, there doesn't appear to be any adjustment on the switch.
From the parts CD there looks to be a different switch on Euro2 & Euro3 spec cars, either 14 or 4.
