5 way switch issue

Asking for some help in finding the problem.

I removed the pickguard of my RG750 to fix a volume pot issue (broken weld) but now, since I put back my pickguard, my 5 way switch is working intermittently. Sometimes, I need to push on its sides to make it work... Weird, as it was working fine before I removed the pickguard. Could it be the switch? A bad ground? Anyone can offer some help? Thanks in advance.

Re: 5 way switch issue

Just an update. After looking at various possible problems, I went with replacing the 5 way switch. Luckily I had another guitar with a similar switch that I cannibalised for the moment. Once replaced, everything is back to normal with the RG750! Rock on!
