remove the 2 screws and then remove the conections were the power goes in the back there is 1 big and 1 small plug

underneath the switch there is a little copper grounding bar if u pull the end closest 2 the engin down it wil just click off

then get the medium flat head screwdriver and put it just behind the whole switch were it is in my pickture and pry the switch towards yourself so the screwdriver wil go away from u

this shouldent take mutch effort if it is make sure u got boath the screws out and the copper strip underneeth
