The switch in the dash is not firing. I need to get it out so I can repair or replace. I can get the suspension selector switch out and feel behind the gas door switch. It feels like it just snaps in, but I can't get enough leverage to push it out. I wondered if I need to remove the entire center tunnel, or if I can ???? something less involved. I have never removed the center tunnel before.....don't know how....
I have been able to open the gas door manually from under the engine cover, but the gas door solenoid doesn't retract by it's self....like the spring return is broken. I have the feeling the solenoid needs replacing also.
NOW from your profile, I see it's a T.
the switches are a PITA to get and you are correct, in the Tunnel for one way. There is a side [sort of] access on the passenger's side, but removing the entire assembly might be best. IF someone has a better way, PLEASE POST IT!!!!
- the switches have a sort of outer knurl that holds them in place. Taking out the entire front plate with switches is another PITA in that there are sort of these light LED like threads that must fit back in properly to light up the switches and plate lettering. They can be tough. IF you can just pop them out, I'd stick with that.
THE other PITA is the two screws that hold the plate to the tunnel top assembly: The only way I know to remove/replace the plate is via the back entry after removing either the entire assembly or almost gaining access via the passenger side foot well, which I never have been successful.
The switches are easy. The 3-way rocker for suspension is rarer in replacement, so go easy on that one.
I do have some diagrams, like from Eurospares.com and RICAMBI.com our sponsor btw. IF you call them, they have very good experience with MONDIAL T's....They have helped me on many times, and are very receptive to straight talking the situation. Give RICAMBI a call.

^ one for sale at about $20, which is at my taking about right: I've replaced them with BMW/BOSCH part for tons less but that ball park is not far off.
The rear switch has four flanges that hold to place, One could 'force' them, and you may in fact be inclined: Squeeze the flanges together is too difficult trying to reach inside. Best is to take out plate.
