Hello and welcome to Just, Super mechanic here. About your vehicle.

You can squeeze the plastic tangs on the pedal side and the switch will pop out. Some of them you would have to cut one of the wires and solder it in to the new switch.

  1. Battery ground (negative) cable.
  2. Switch cover retaining screws.
  3. Switch cover.
    • Cut wire at switch.

Install or Connect

  1. Splice wires and solder
