How to remove Brake Lamp/Light switch
I have a 1999 Volvo S80 which needs to have the heater core replaced. I already have the new heater core, but I'm having trouble removing the broken one because I cannot for the life of me figure out how to take the brake lamp switch off. I called the local Volvo dealership here in town and they told me that they have a special tool that they use to take it off and that there is no other way. I have also seen on forums on the internet that there is a way to take it off by releasing some tabs but I haven't been able to do it. Lastly, I have seen in a couple different forums that say that the only way to remove it is to break it off and replace it with a new one, which I guess would coincide with what the dealership said. So, I'm confused because of all of the contradictions, and if possible I would rather not have to break it and pay for a new one. Can someone clear this up for me or possibly provide a link to pictures or video of how its done? Thanks in advance.
