Welcome. First the area is cramped around there so you will need a couple of tools. I use a longer blade screw driver to lift the center tab of the retainer, then once it is up, slide to release the tab and then slide the switch off and disconnect it. Installation takes a set of pliers to hold the clip and slide if back on. The center tab is to hold the clip from sliding as it is the keyhole design.
