transfer case switch removal

k, i found it (driver's side on top of TC). now how do i remove it? i see a rubberized plug with four vacuum lines coming out of it (right?). didn't want to budge when i pulled on it and i'm not sure if that's what i should do anyway. so what now? tnx

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

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.
