Headlight Switch Removal:

Headlight Switch Details:

This type of headlight switch contains circuit breakers that are designed to flash if the headlight current become excessive. Simple fuses could blow and leave the driver in the dark at a critical time whereas a circuit breaker will flash on and off and at least continue to provide some light.

Important Points:

Note 2 things. 1. The small knob at the bottom of the picture that the arrow points to. 2. The circular nut between the wire and the Headlight Switch Knob. This holds the Headlight Switch in place.

Removing the Knob:

To release the Headlight Switch Knob, pull the Headlight Switch Knob right out to the on position. Then push on the small black button while you gently pull on the black Headlight Switch Knob. Completely remove the black Headlight Switch Knob from the dash.

Removing the Switch:

Once the Headlight Switch Knob has been completely removed, unscrew and remove the circular nut, then the lightswitch can be removed. Thread
