take a big *** vice grip and get it off, it unscrews normally.

94 was a great year for the yj, 2006 was a great year when i put the sport cage in it...

The rubber cop on the switch can be tough to get off.
Usually some wiggling it and rocking it back an forth will get it to come off.
It's keyed so it can only on on 1 way.

As posted above the switch itself is just screwed into the tcase.

i tried yesterday but i couldn't get a pair of vice grips on it well enough to loosen it. there's just no room in there for turning either. anyone have a tip on how i can get the switch loose without taking things apart? maybe a large socket or somethin?

if you have the new one, just see what socket will fit onto it!!!

if not, i used an cresant wrench. it is a tight fit, but once it is cracked loose, you should be able to turn it by hand.
