First post and hoping someone can help!
I need to remove this 2 gang light switch from the wall (wall getting knocked down).
I was planning to connect the appropriate wires from the switches together in a junction box in the roof space.
Trouble is I'm not sure which wires to connect!
The output from the 2nd switch on this plate (right switch) is redundant.
Thought I could connect all the reds together, all black together and all earth together, but something tells me it's not as simple as that!
Need to do this job today, so any help much appreciated!
Thanks in advance!

Looks like its loop in at the switch, you will need more than a junction box.......too late now.
But as the wall is coming down why not chase out where the cables are, and poke the whole lot into the loft and sort it later

Take it easy, a forum is only a collection of opinions. Above, are mine.

Which is correct? Metre or Meter? Click the link. to find out more.

No such thing as "Thou shalt put this wire here, Thou shalt put that wire there" .............Take a picture BEFORE you do the job.

If gloom had a voice, it would be me. :mrgreen:
