I will definitely be ordering a new 3 way toggle switch. This one is shitty..
Are you good at soldering?? If so order a switch craft toggle . You can either get the pre wired switch or just the switch. The switch you would just solder on to the old switches wire or with the pre wired one you would just splice the plug on to the end of it...

"Quick connects." Neither quick nor connecting. It's easy to learn wiring, and the investment in doing so pays off in what you are then able to do... forever. Quick connections allow you to connects (maybe) quickly (maybe) so you can buy and use a small number of branded, preconceived, and prewired products later on. The quick-connection "system" could have been executed in a manner that accepts all pickups, with their different wiring codes, but, well, that would be more helpful but less controlling and manipulative, and businesses emphasize the latter.
