There is a thread on here, somewhere, that has detailed instructions on how to get that ridiculous thing out step by step. What a great design flaw, huh? I have the same problem with that and have a $17.00 brand new POS Hazard Relay Switch in my glove box just waiting to be installed. when I get to it.....All that, for something so small. I will see if I can find the tread with step by step instructions.
