I did all my switches in 2016 after I bought the boat in 2015. The switches that Bill shows the photo of is correct. I was in Marseille and Amel Hyeres would have done the change at no charge. I decided to do it myself and Amel Hyeres sent me everything, drill bit to make the joke bigger, wood position block to drill the hole, electrical connectors and sealant.
No leaks and no problems with the new switches. They actually did not have any records that my 54 had not been done.

If I may jump in, attached are pictures of the "old" switches,
the ones that must be replaced.
The new ones are bigger (see Bill's pic). They need a 43 mm diameter
hole. Maybe you can check the diameter of yours from below.
Also, Amel keeps track of the boats that have already been updated. So
Bill's advice to call them is right and on the safe side.
The letter informing about the recall is from 2011, so maybe all A54 are
eligible. By that time, the replacement set was probably Lewmar, as far as I
know. But according to Maud, Amel no longer have a partnership with Lewmar. So it is Harken now.

Should read: “AMEL paid for the cost”.

Is there a way to tell the difference between the original/recall switch and the new/replacement switch?
I understand from other A54 owners that AMEL sent the replacement switches and the owners would arrange the replacement locally (and believe also paid for the cost
I have several of these switches on board but cannot tell whether they are new/replacement or the “recall/replaced” switches which I should get off the boat. I
don’t like keeping “non-functional” parts on the boat but previous owner had a different approach. For me it works or doesn’t work and if I want to “recycle/repair” I better do it promptly and not “down the road”.

Does the Lewmar switch recall apply to all or is there a date?

Stefan, Do you have a better photo of the document? It would really be nice to have if I ever have to re-rig!
