    Hello, I am trying to use my sock fog light switch for my new lights and can't figure out how to remove it. The lower row is easy to pop out but can't seam to reach the upper switch. What am I missing? (It's a 05 if that matters)

    I got the fog light switch out by taking out the center blank, then I got the switch out by reaching in and pushing it out. To get the center blank out, I tucked strong fishing line behind the face of the blank, then yanked it out. You'll need something thin to tuck the line into the narrow space between the dash and the blank itself.

    Hope this helps.

    Hey buddy just did mine, really easy, this is what you do. Use a tiny flat screw driver to remove the mirror control panel, also remove the left side cubby holder thing right under it. This will give you space to see all the way up (from the bottom, laying on the floor of drivers side) to the fog light switch panel and others. Use a flashlight to see what your doing and a flat screw driver to push it out from behind and walah!!! ;) i will make a write up soon with pics. THIS IS TE FASTEST AND CLEANEST WAY TO DO THIS!!:)
