Rocker Switches



See Figures 1 and 2

The dash or console mounted rocker switches are easily removed. Depending on the model, it may be necessary to remove the trim panel surrounding the switch. After this is done, reach behind the switch and disconnect the wire harness running to the switch. While your hand is back there, grasp each side of the switch, compress the retaining clips and remove the switch through the front of the panel.

If length allows, the wire harness may be brought out through the panel (after the switch is removed) for circuit testing. When reinstalling, make sure the wiring is properly routed and not crimped or pinched. The switch should engage the panel with a definite click when in place. Reinstall the trim panel.
