1. Locate the two 7mm hex nuts on the plastic panel under the steering column and remove both.

2. Carefully remove the plastic panel the nuts from step 1 were securing.

3. After the panel is removed locate the one 7mm hex nut to the left of the steering column that is securing the message center button and light switch housing. Remove the single 7mm nut and carefully remove the housing.

4. Unplug the wiring harness from the back of the light switch and locate the three tabs that secure the light switch in the housing. Push each tab in and remove the headlight switch.

5. Installation of the SW6659 is the reverse of removal of the stock part. Enjoy
I just installed mine an hour ago and it didn't require any tools. The panel around the switch pops out. All you need to do is apply slight pressure to all corners and it will come out. Unplug the wire harness, remove switch via tabs and pop new one in. That easy...
