3 Way Battery Switch Failed

Ahoy shipmates.
My 3 way battery switch has failed on the battery 2 option, I have dissasmbled it and cleaned it, it all looks ok, no corrosion, but the contact is not being made on that selection.
Other contacts work ok.

I wnet through the drama of installing a new start battery in Sibolga, only to discover that it was the switch!

Any suggestions on a fix? Can't access a new one until I return to Malaysia from Sumatra.
Maybe punching a crease in the battery 2 copper contact to ensure a connection?
Please help.
Cheers from Keith.
