Hi all, please excuse the lack of knowledge however I have a 2 button light switch where one button controls a utility light and the other an outside light. No other switches control either light. The issue I have is that the button (left hand side as you look at it whilst wall mounted) for the outside light is the right way around when in on/off position however the one for the utility light (right hand side button as you look at it whilst wall mounted) is the opposite way around meaning they sit uneven when both in the on or off positions.

Can anyone help me out as to how to fix this? I read somewhere that I could do the plate off and turn it 180 degrees but obviously this would just move the issue to the other switch. Any ideas?? I will try and attach a pic.

Also I've made sure the fuse is off and no power running to the switch!

Many thanks
