How in the F do you get the head light switch off to pull the rest of the dash out?

The knob has a release style spring which locks on the switch stem
Pull switch and release the knob .

Ya the spring locks into a groove on the shaft if I remember right. I used a small stiff wire and bent a U in it and that did the trick for me. Good luck

WLED-WHP5

Look great and don't give you "hot spots". Get enough to do the HVAC panel.

Also, don't forget to test your set-up before reassembly. LED's are diodes and only work in one direction.
