Can anyone tell me how to get the lightswich off the dashboard.
Am I supposed to remove the outside ring and then pull it back or what?
I tried unsuccessfully but didn't want to use too much force in case I was doing it wrong...
Another theory of mine was that maybe the "axle" should be removed and then use a screwdriver in the "X" in the middle to unscrew the switch?

Oh... it's a '67 by the way, in case it's different in different years.

This is probably basic knowlege but hey, better to ask than to do it wrong and break something... (done that too many times...)

There should be a small button on the side of the headlight switch up under the dash. Pull out on the switch like you were turning on the headlights and then hold in this button while you pull the shaft out of the switch. Then you can use a large blade screwdriver or similar tool to unscrew the bezel ring and the switch assy will come out.
