[DML] Re: Needed Badly: Button Clip for the Mode Switch



Joe,

I just disassembled my mode switch yesterday, and the plastic was so 
brittle on the tabs that they broke. However, I took the piece (now 
missing the top of one tab) and turned it sideways (since the hole is 
rectangular) and pushed it back in. It was a tight squeeze, and 
required force, but pushed the remaining tab through as well as 
jammed this plastic piece up into the switch. I do not think it is 
going to go anywhere, as it is very tight. Hooked everything back up 
and the seal works great. If you cannot find the plastic clip w/tabs, 
try this out before buying a new switch. 

Also, I learned my lesson with the center console removal, and have 
now taken out the metal retaining clips for the shift plate. Ugh, 
what a pain to get out.
