once you take your beezel out, disconect the wires from the back. Then just twist the metal part in the back and it will twist out.

I got both of mine out fairly easy with a flat screwdriver to pry out the clip on each of the housing parts and just pull. The one I couldn't get out was my 4x4 **** deal.

My lighter will just unthread and come off the aux power point is the same way but the plastic is like moulded over it so it won't come out. I will just have to get a bigger hammer when I go to paint it.

yup just take out the 2 screws for the button.

The reading part....(2wd 4wd hi 4wd lo) That piece doesnt come out. I just put some tape over it.

The know pops off towards you, and the other piece goes through the back.
