Let $V$ be a vector space of finite dimension and let $T,S$ linear diagonalizable transformations from $V$ to itself. I need to prove that if $TS=ST$ every eigenspace $V_\lambda$ of $S$ is $T$-invariant and the restriction of $T$ to $V_\lambda$ ($T:{V_{\lambda }}\rightarrow V_{\lambda }$) is diagonalizable. In addition, I need to show that there's a base $B$ of $V$ such that $[S]_{B}^{B}$, $[T]_{B}^{B}$ are diagonalizable if and only if $TS=ST$.

Ok, so first let $v\in V_\lambda$. From $TS=ST$ we get that $\lambda T(v)= S(T(v))$ so $T(v)$ is eigenvector of $S$ and we get what we want. I want to use that in order to get the following claim, I just don't know how. One direction of the "iff" is obvious, the other one is more tricky to me.
