Microswitch, replacement

Hi!

Gonna change the microswitch in the back window, not worked in ages. Have dismantled everything, removed the wiper and screws. After what I have seen on DIY on the internet, I now can lift the switch up, on the outside of the window.
But I can't get it free, it's the aluminum ring that is corroded I guess?
Juiced it in with WD40, tried to knock carefully, but I have no clue have to get it free.

Any tips from you guys? Should it be possible to rotate the switch? Or does it sit in "tracks", I'm thinking about knocking it sideways?

Hope somebody has som good tips

It finally came loose, with a dremel, had to cut the switch and the aluminum ring.
