Sorry if this a repeat, but with dialup I could only scan so many old posts.

I have a '85 RC Prospector that I am trying to get past state inspection. The marker lights (front yellows and red tail lights) don't work. All bulbs are good, all other lights work. I'm pretty sure its the switch but I can't figure out how to get it out of the dash. There is no apparent way to disconnect the pull lever to let me get to the switch. Any help would be appreciated.

Look up under the dash directly benesth the switch, there will be a small round silver button. Push it in as you pull out on the knob and the knob part will pull out. Yoiu may have to fiddle with the knob in and out to get it to release. After that you will need something wide and flat to unscrew the large fitting that holds the switch itself to the dash.

Forgot to mention you will also have to remove the dash fascia first.

Cheers

Chris
