You have to take the 'bracket' part #7, off to take the button out. Look at diagram, remove end bracket 7:

The part I am looking to remove is the Button Cover Part No 2 on the base canopy Diagram. Need to get to a relay near the motor
Expert:  Craig replied 6 years ago.
That part #2 'snaps' off, it is not screwed on if you look at the diagram here:
It should pop off with light pressure with a screw driver.
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
I agree with the attempt But it does not want to come off that way. There appear to be Three places that it holds on to the part numbered 12. What does not show on the diagram are a number of places on Part # XXXXX that extend under Part # XXXXX and hold it in place. Further if you notice on part No 2 there are small sort of Hooked shaped ends on the three pieces that seem to hook into part No 12

Expert:  Craig replied 6 years ago.
Those are the fasteners. The three clips are what hold it. Flex it up to free the clip. Use a bit of pressure with a screw driver. Don't break it put push it up and out.
