headlight switch replacement question

I've looked for posts on replacing the headlight switch but not found anything. Anyone have a link to a good headlight replacement thread? Any advice on doing this?

Before you replace it, you can squirt it with tuner or contact cleaner\
Just squirt the cleaner into any hole you can find in the switch and down the shaft.
Then work the switch a bunch
Mine was acting up and it cleaned it and have had no issues since then

You still do need to pull it out first
