How does the OD switch (button) come out?

I have a 2000 F-250, the OD light comes on sometimes, usually jiggling the shifter will make it go off but sometimes not. It's just the light in the shifter that comes on, the tranny is not going into/out of overdrive...

Anyway I found a replacement switch at LMT for under $10 & thought I would switch it out. Thing is it comes with no instructions. It looks to me like maybe it just sort of pries out, like it's just a pressure fit, but before I screw up my shifter thought I'd ask here: How does the OD on/off button attatch to the shifter, & what is the best way to remove it?

Sound like there may be a short at the end of the shifter.
You may need to replace the whole assembly or just reinsulate the wire at the end of the shifter base.
Depending on your speed you will not feel the truck come out of overdrive because it is not in overdrive.
But if the light is on it will not go into overdrive.
The shifter wiring is a comon thing to wear and start shorting.

I do not think the button is the issue.
