Centre Vent Switch Panel - Removing connector plug and switch

Recommended Posts

:help: Hi there,

I'm replacing a painted/lacquered centre vent switch panel that's showing its age.

I've managed to remove the wiring loom plug from the cigarette lighter assembly by depressing the lock tab on the plug and I've also removed the lighter assembly itself from the panel. One down.

However I'm struggling to removing the 3 wiring loom plugs from the 3 switches. I've tried but they don't seem to want to budge even with some good elbow grease. I can't see any obvious locking tabs on the plugs. I'm afraid to apply more force in case of damage either the plug or the switch. I've attached an image showing the 3 plugs (the yellow green pink plugs).

Is there a trick to removing these, or do I just need to apply more force or perhaps lever them off ? Suggestions welcome.

They do take quite a bit of hand and finger strength but they do pull straight off.

Another alternative is to just pry the swtich out of the bezel and leave the plug connected to it.

A thin flat bladed screwdriver above or below the switch itself (not the plug), then gently pry up or down and the switch will come out of the holder away from the front of the bezel.
