headlight switch

On 2002 NEWMAR MOUNTAIN-AIRE I removed the headlight switch from the dash but unable to remove the wire harnesses from the light switch. My goal is to replace the switch but can't get the wires off the old switch. Any help would sure be appreciated.

Why not cut them close and put new Stake-ons, on or soldier them to the new switch. Of course this is if you have enough free wire available to work with.

Your switch is subject to very high amperage conditions and as such, often frys a connection. Take a piece of anything nonconductive and pry between the switch and the molex plug that the wires extend out of. Your may be facing repairs anyway but easier to repair what is necessary than to cut all wires unless you have the factory type crimper called a u throat.
