Get a shop manual. It specifies exactly how to pull it. I believe there is a button on the back of it, and you press that and pull the knob/shaft out. Once that is done, there is a nut holding the switch on the dash. It comes out with a BF Screwdriver across the grooves in it.


Also, use 3M black weatherstrip adhesive to install the trunk weatherstrip.

Good luck.

I just did this two weeks ago.

Reach up under the dash and find the small push release button up on top of the switch. Push that and pull the shaft out of the housing. Then get the biggest philips head you can find and turn out the interior shaft screw from the front and remove the switch from the back, replace in reverse.

That little button some times can be a pain, look at your new switch for reference and orientation.You should start with switch in off position, depress button, then pull knob out, sometimes a couple repeats is necessary.Process usually invovles some serious hand cramps and cussing.I think it might be easier with instrument cluster out, you can get something in there besides your soft finger to depress that metal button.

I used 3M weatherstrip adhesive (yellow, gooey stuff) that comes in a toothpaste tube with great results - the stuff is incredibly tacky after only a minute or so.

I'm about to do this too. My tube of the yellow stuff has no instructions. Do you apply the glue to both surfaces and let it dry before putting the surfaces together - like contact cement? Or do you put them together while the stuff is gooey?
