    I think you just have to turn the nut holding them to the dash... might need a small allen wrench to take the knob off...

    Headlight switch - Disconnect battery, pull switch to "on" position, reach up behind dash and push in the button that is on top of the switch, this allows you to pull the knob/shaft out of the switch. The lights will stay on, which is why you want to disconnect the battery.

    Wiper switch knob is held on by a set screw in the side of the knob. Requires a small allen wrench to loosen set-screw, and the knob comes off.

    Both switches are then held in by hex nuts from the bezel side - it is obvoius once you get the knobs off.

    You still have to push the button on the switch to pull The shaft out. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
