Silent Pickup - Help??

Hey all, i was wondering if any of you could help me??
When ever i move the pickup selector to the neck pup on my guitar im getting no sound, then if i 'wiggle' the selector if finally comes to life. Over time its taking more 'wiggling' to get it to work, and i have a feeling that one day soon its gonna stop working altogether!! Its only a cheap guitar so i dont really wanna spend money on taking it to a tech.
Any one come across this problem before? I imagine its quite common??
Any help greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

You could try contact cleaner , but from what it sounds you need a new switch. Cheap, around $10 and a soldering iron.
