Any Suggestions? 1970 Mustang Headlight switch removal

Hey everybody,

Its been a while since I have been on here and its been a long time since I have worked on my 1970 coupe. Well I took her out the other day and noticed, "oh the tail lights don't come on." So I checked the ground and all the connections and it seems they are getting power. Everyone tells me its the switch. Well getting that switch out, oh thats a little more difficult than I thought. Does anyone know how to easily remove the switch from the dash? I would really appreciate any help!

to get the headlight switch shaft out pull on knob like you are putting headlights on,then you have to push button in that is on the side of the switch,with button pushed in pull on headlight knob and shaft will come out.then you have to unscrew headlight bezel that holds switch in.( before you start make sure batt. is disconected)

Alright. So the headlight bezel just unscrews from the front i'd imagine? Thanks, I will go out and try this right now!
