Hi, I'm Don from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and the next time you need a part for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

In this video, we're going to show you how to replace the four-wheel drive switch pack on this 2002 Chevy Suburban. The items you'll need for this include a new 4x4 switch pack from 1AAuto.com and a flat blade screwdriver.

To start off, we need to remove the dash panel. Make sure your steering wheel is horizontal, pull down your shifter all the way down, and then just pull out on this panel. You want to slide it forward and up and over the steering wheel.

To remove your 4-wheel drive switch pack, just pry out from the different sides and it'll just pop out. Then to disconnect these two harnesses, you just want to put out on the tab and pull the harness free. Your switch pack is free.

Take your new switch pack, connect the harnesses, and then push it back into place.

Take your dash panel, put it up over the steering wheel, and then tuck it down behind that steering column. Line up the panel and push it back into place and you're all set.
