Okay I don't have a manual and I need to know how to replace my headlight switch. I have the switch I am not just not sure how to properly take out the dial, without breaking anything. What is the best way? To just pop it out with a screwdriver or what?

theres only 1 screw holding it in, its right under it. the whole piece is actually that vent/fog light/headlamp switch.

take the screw out, then just pull it out and unplug the two cords going to the light switches. not too hard at all.

^^Yes, but to undo the switch from the vent, you have to take the dial knob off. Easiest way to do this is to put electrical tape on the dial for better grip, and pull it out. The you'll see the nut that holds the switch on to the vent.
