Is your switch broken or just peeling? Just trying to figure out what you are trying to accomplish...

You are correct on the pressure clips...I highly recommend buying one of these,

I bought this one...I begin by pulling the front (closest to hood) up then moving my way around the piece. I should come back rather easily from there. Mine was peeling and was told I could not separate the mechanism from the cover which is not true. They come out quite easily and will pop back in just as easy...

Hope this helps

Anyone know if there's any way to find the actual plastic switch itself as opposed to the entire lifter assembly? Can you buy an individual passenger switch and take off the small plastic part?
