Pickup selector problem.

My pickup selector works for middle and neck, but not for the bridge position. It's happened before, but usually switching it a few times makes it work again. That doesn't seem to be happening this time.

Basically, I was just wondering if this is an easy & cheap fix/a common problem?

You may want to start with some contact cleaner.

Open the cavity and spray some compressed air into switch, while toggling back and forth. If that doesn't help, then just replace the switch. usually an easy repair if you know how to solder. Cheaper switches tend to wear out easily.
