    Headlight switch is fairly easy, on one side of it, behind the dash, is a small "button". Push that button in and pull on the knob like you are turning the lights on. If it doesn't come out, pull the knob out first, then press button and pull all the way out. Can't remember which it is anymore. After that, the black plastic piece on the cab side of the dash unthreads like a nut, and the switch comes out from under the dash.

    I don't know as the brake release arm is seperate...I *think* its riveted to the bracket, meaning the whole bracket has to come out. Amazingly, never had to remove one so not positive how it comes all the way out.
