How do I take the guts out of a truck switch? I can't get a picture to load(*&^%$#@!
Some styles have the 4 bent over tabs, others have pins in the fiber back plate of the switch that fit in slots in the side of the switch housing. The tabs you need to pry up, just enough to get things apart, because they can break off, the pins, you need to twist the back plate then pull it out.
If it has pins,push the guts inward slightly to get the pins out of a small notch then turn.
If tabs, be careful as they will break.
Truck switch? It's the same as a car switch. The T and the TT have the same one. As the guys said, it has tabs or pins. If tabs, turn them red and let them cool before you reassemble and bend them back over the back plate.
I was past the tab part, just needed to know how to remove the innards. Finally figured that out and removed the two rivets. Bead blasted everything and it's now ready for paint.
I prefer the pin type switch backs, but that is just me. I like everything correct, so I take the semi-tubular rivets and turn the heads down to the same configuration as the originals. While apart I repaint the unit, and hand letter the information on the switch assembly with white paint, which takes me about a week.
