I just installed mine a week ago - definitely the easiest mod ever. Just make sure you use something to protect the trim as you're prying. I used the butterknife technique with a napkin wrapped around it. No problems getting into the trim on the speedometer side. It took all of 5 minutes.

If anyone needs help with this mod in Northern Jersey, I'm near Edgewater.

actually, I think using 2 credit cards, or the like, and a screwdriver in between them then twisting is the easiest method. works perfectly and doesn't damage the trim....good luck

Just ordered my switch as my car meanders up to Mass from the VPC. And today would be a PERFECT day to use the rear fogs. . . .alas.
