Hm. Been to the hardware store 2 times.<snip>An open ended wrench grabs the thing just fine.
Also, you can pull the center console and work this spot through the cab floor. It's right there.
Once to get a 1-1/16" wrench to fit this switch, and once to get an open end crows-foot which they didn't have.
For the life of me I cannot get a wrench in there where it's oriented so I can get it out. Not enough room. I even tried an 8" adjustable. Not enough room through the hole and not enough room from underneath.
the good news is that I put a paperclip in to verify that his will fix the issues...and it does. Now I just need to get that damn thing swapped out. I already have the switch...which was about $90, BTW.
Oh well. I was hoping to find the silver bullet as to why I cannot get to my switch. "should be easy". NOT. Mine is about 4" behind the hole. Going out to verify the old switch. Maybe it was just a bad connection.
If the switch is bad, I bring her in with switch and have it swapped out.
Good news? I now have three new wrenches...
