How to remove faceplate from swithces?

Recommended Posts

I need to remove the faceplate from the FWL switch and the TT Spoiler switch (I am swapping them). Without breaking any tabs, etc., does anybody know how to remove/replace the covers?

**I am referring to the thin rocker switch covers that have the picture of the spoiler up/down and the light that looks like a sun**

The faceplates with the switches just clip off.

Early models, the face plate is made up in sections so you can unclip

just the section you need. I think later models have a single

faceplate. Use a butter knife to prose the plate off but don't let the knife go in too far to short any switches.

If you mean the trim for the switches, this is a picture of a Boxster. Pre 2002 996 are the same except the trim is shaped a bit different. It is held in place with 2 plastic tabs. If you have long fingernails you can lift up on the trim. I use a thin blade.

Then there are 2 ways to remove the switches. From the back of the trim you insert a thin screwdriver and pop the switch out. From the front of the trim if you push hard enough on the oval button the switch will pop out the back.
