Grrr. Need help please.

Hey everyone,
I purchased the factory looking rocker light switch and it doesn't fit. I'm trying to figure out what I need to cut in order to make the switch fit. I know I saw something a long time ago on this website about it, but I can't, for the life of me, find the thread. Could someone please point me in the right direction?

Thanks!

Are you taking about this switch? Just take a file and file down the tabs in the opening. No trimming needed on the switch itself.

Yea! That's the one! So just file the little tabs that are on the left and right side of the panel?

Yep...that's all you do. It's been awhile since I did it, so I don't remember how much I filed off. Just do it in stages and test fitting as you go.

Exactly!

We did the same thing. File off small amounts and test fit. The tighter the fit the better.

Never file the truck!
