I would love that. Thank u

to replace the head light switch, the panel that it is in, has to come out, below is the procedure for removing it, on the left outer side of the dash, there is an air vent, this vent pulls out, then you reach into the hole and push in and out on the headlight switch panel to get it out, then it just unbolts from the panel,Tim
