    hi everyone, can someone tell me how to remove the switch to raise and lower the antenna. there is a white part behind the switch and i can't access the tabs that you're supposed to push. i'm trying to put in a new bulb.
    thanks

    Pull the dash face off and get at it from the rear. Pops right out.

    Where the switch gets skinny on the back there is a little clip that you can lift with a small flathead screwdriver. Passenger Side I think. It was a little more difficult than the rest of the switches to remove. it doesnt have the gray screw in bulb thingys like the other switches. has anyone taken the white casing off to replace the bulbs?Thanks ERG80

    It works the same on a '97. I just did mine a couple hours ago. Removed the two screws above the radio to install the cupholder, hooked my finger through the hole and pushed out the switch. The whole procedure including the new cupholder takes about ten minutes.

    How do you get into the white housing to change the bulbs?
