Hi
Has anyone removed this switch before?
I have a faulty light switch,Do I just pry it out to remove it to replace with a new one?
Thanks

If its the dip switch which is part of the left handlebar cluster that's not how you do it at all. You would need to split the halves of the clamp and this may entail removing one or both halves of the handlebar covers and possibly also moving the brake lever by unclamping that first. When you have the switch cluster split you will be able to see how the dip switch is connected and held in place. Before you do any of this you should be sure that the problem is caused by the switch rather than the relays.

I would agree I would expect to have to split the actual switch cluster housing. Guessing it's held together with screws accessed from underneath, as is usually the norm.

Don't forget this is a Xevo not an X10 and as such is painfully easy in comparison, no switch assemblies and non maintenance bits of overly complex stuff

Just push the switch out of the cover by feeling from behind if you can get your fingers in, or just carefully lever it out with a screwdriver.

Hi
I took off the plastic covers to remove the switch but as usual Dave was right.
For further info no need to take off the plastic covers,just pry out carefully with a small screwdriver.Very easy and now all good.
Thanks again to all who replied.

There is a lot to be said for the tacky plastic switches Piaggio traditionally used. They were crap, but cheap and easily changed and also common to a lot of models so easy to find.
