Hi, I’m Mike from 1A Auto. We’ve been selling auto parts for over 30 years!

We're going to pop this trim off the side of the drivers seat. I'm going to use trim tools. You can buy these from I'm going to start with the small one. Get in here. Get it sort of popped out. It's in here with quite a bit of force, so once I've got that opened up I'm going to use the bigger one. Pop it out. There's a couple clips along the top. So, it pops out the back first and pops out towards the front. And there's a pin in the front, so try to pop it out. And then it's going to slide out.

We're going to remove the seat adjustment switch from the trim panel. It's got three clips holding it in. So, we're going to use the plastic prying tool. And just pry this up. And pry that one up and pry this one. And as you do that this will want to pop up and out. And there's one more here. It will come right out.

Now that’s free, there's two locks here. Push the two locks together. Kind of a wide connector. And then you pull the switch out.

We'll plug it right back in. It's keyed, it will only go in one way. And then we'll push it down in. Snap in place.

Reinstall the switch panel. Put this tab in the front. Slide it in. Push this back in. It will clip into place. Job is complete.
