Need help removing switch cover in YJ
Hello, New member here. Hoping one of you veterans can lend a hand. I am attempting to replace the wiper switch in my 89 YJ. I have removed the steering wheel, Turn signal switch, ignition lock cylinder, key warning buzzer switch, the actuating lever and the four screws securing the housing assembly. The Chilton manual then says to "remove the switch cover", but are they referring to the whole cover, or where it splits? If I try to remove the whole cover, it feels like it is hung on something, and if I try to pry the two plastic pieces apart it feels like it will snap (fractured a piece already). If you can, please tell me which piece they are referring to and what's the best way to do it. I must be missing something. Thank you.
Yes, I had to remove the whole column. Once you have the column out, there are 3 screws holding the covers in place. You will find them once you turn the column over. Putting the column back together is a bit tricky without a magnetized screw driver because the fit is tight and I kept losing the screws. I had to tape the screws to the screw driver to keep from knocking them off repeatedly. Removing the column is not hard and actually makes it a bit easier to work on the column from a work bench. I took photos when I completed mine. I'll try and upload later.
