Broke door sensor pin :pics inside:

I broke the rear driver side door sensor, the pin that gets pushed in by the door when its closed. How Can I fix this? How do I pull out the piece that holds the pin in? Its hard to make this not sound confusing

I had the stealership fix mine when it did this for like 40 bucks including labor.

12 for the new switch the rest was stealership charge

EDIT: Yes i know im lazy 40 bucks not bad considering i sat on my butt while they did it.

I would do it myself if I knew how... but 40$ doesn't seem bad untill you realize exaclty what you are paying for.

Ya hehe im sure its simple to install you need to pull back the plastic panel on the inside and it should be plainly visable it prolly just screws on and then a wire harness connects to that.

OH! I never though about that... I assumed the old one maybe screwed in.. or pushed in... or something. OK I will tear open that pannel and see.

It pushes in... no screws. It installs in place kind of like a wall anchor. I bought one with the plan to install it for the tailgate to get it to turn on the interior light in my TJ. I will take a pic of it when I get home to show you what it looks like.
