    Hello Everyone,

    Can someone tell me the proper procedure to remove the Ignition Switch, Wiper Switch, and Light Switch from the dash panel. I just don't want to break anything.

    there a button on the back of the light switch you push when you have the rod pulled out and on the Ign switch use a paper clip in the little hole by where the key inserts push in the paper clip as you turn the key as you push in the paper clip and the key ign lock comes out then the Ign bezel will come out easly. Maybe Don has some picture of this

    Sometimes the bezel comes off over the cylinder,,,,,sometimes you need to put the key in,,,,put a paper clip in the hole,,,push it in while turning the key counterclockwise,,,,There is a spring you push on the back of the headlight switch that lets the knob and shaft come out,,,,,and that spring might not be happy to be pushed,,,,you can wear out your finger pressing it and pulling and pushing on the knob until it finally comes out,,,,if there is not a set screw in the wiper knob,,,,pull it off,,,,
