Took off console cover (two screws) separated back cover from console cover (4 nutscrews) pulled out two connectors from switch to be replaced and then unscrewed one nut screw. replaced with new unit and reversed processs. 5 minutes. Took another 20 minutes playing with cleaning dust, lint, and having fun restoring console to original shine. Had a lot of fun being my own repairman.
