    How do I take it off?

    Ok, get the crayons out and draw me little pictures. Wait, wait, type real slow, this one is kicking me.:screwup:

    I'm trying to replace my light switch, but can not for the world figure out how to take it off. If it just pulls off - Wow, this one is tough.

    There is a release button on the back of the switch. If you depress that and pull lightly, it comes out along with its shaft.

    I feel your pain man. There's a youtube video out there from fbodywarehouse about how to remove it. I must have watched it five times as I'm trying to get mine off while the guy really stresses how hard you have to press that release pin.

    I was smashing the crap out of mine and that knob would not release to save my life. I ended up taking the switch apart and found out the pin wasn't able to push down far enough to release the knob.

    Bought a new switch for around $20 and that pin worked like a champ.
