I went and looked at the switch doesn't look any harder than replacing hub seals. I guess as red green often says if you can replace with oem parts you can with duct tape a hole lot easier. :lol: :lol:

The level of difficulty for some is based if it's equal to, or easier than popping a top on a brew... :roll:

After considerable soul searching,I decided to share MY secret with you Ka......Lefty loosey and then Righty tighty! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
Sorry ,couldn't pass that one up!
It's snug behind the m-cyl,I have small hands and wasn't any big deal. I did find a small pair of channelocks worked just fine for both the tighty and the loosey.

thx mark. so it is possible without special tools. will stick that data in my back pocket for lates. but i guess i would need to find someone with small hands, too. mine sure dont fit in there, and neither do any of my wrenches. oh well... good thing there's a gr8 work around.
