You have to remove the bezel around the cluster that it is on. To do this, remove the radio bezel, kick panel, and the metal shield and you can then remove the instrument bezel.

Once removed, the switch is held on my Phillips screws (one or two, can't remember) and it comes right off.

If you need more clarification let me know.

So glad I noticed the answer to your question in post #2 is totally worthless and a big WTF incorrect, that I could and would have given you the correct answer, but your pissy little response above convinces me that you will manage to do just great all by your self centered, entitlement minded self.

Edit: Merry Christmas.

Life is far too short to be serious all the time. So if you can't stop and laugh at yourself along the way, give me a call and I'll do it for you.

On that note, good luck too you....



BTW: You originally created this post in the "introduce yourself" section of the forum which could explain why "15 people viewed and nobody knows"...

I moved it to the interior tech section awhile back to assist YOU in YOUR request for assistance from our members...You're welcome.

After reading this thread over and over trying to figure out what the **** I got wrong I noticed I way over thought things.

The damn knob just pulls off. Done.

Confused "knob" for "switch". Lol.

OP, this is a public forum, not a face-to-face conversation. Shit takes a little time. But to answer your question; pull on the fuckin knob.
