looking for help with transfer case vaccum switch

Is there an easy way to change this vaccum switch? Is there a write up that I could refer to I was looking and didn't come across one so thought maybe someone did this. Or can I access the switch through the shifter area.
Thank you in advance for any help you can give.
Pat

IIRC, I was able to get up in there with some channel locks and break it loose, then take it off by hand. When you reinstall, put some teflon tape on the threads to keep it from leaking.

I had to buy a socket, it was too tight for channelloks like the previous poster. Unfortunately it was an odd size (1-3/16?) and I don't remember the exact size at the moment.

If you have trouble getting to it drop your skid Down an inch or to give a little more room to work with.
