Yes i know the hole is nowhere near the switch. But when i had my the central lock in my hands last time i thought of this. So i studied these holes an where the wd-40 would go when aplied from the outside :) So the microswitch is about two inches below this hole. If you use the plastic tube on the wd-40 and insert it in the hole and spray right in the hole while moving the tube a little in circles you should be ok.
