[DML] Re: Mode Switch Removal Method

Steve .

This can be tricky.  Sometimes you can reach your hand to the back side from the 
passenger side floor.  Their is one small screw that needs to be removed it is next to the 
switch shaft.  

The other more common way is too remove the A/C ducts above the radio. Gently pry the 
one piece assembly forward with a small flat blade screw driver.
Next remove the radio knobs to access the shaft nuts. Remove them and push the radio 
back in then lift it up through the duct opening and remove. Now you should have easy 
access too the switch and can disconnect it . Make sure you remember the wire 
orientations for re-installation.

When you go to reinstall everything, you may need to disassemble the A/C duct vents and 
re-install the outer shell first making sure the rubber air ducts are properly in place. Then 
you can install the vents individually. becareful with them they are plastic and fragile.

if you are causious with disassembly you should not hve any problem.
