Default Remove hatch release from carpeting

I've been fiddling with trying to get the rear hatch switches out so I can wash the carpeting and I'm having difficulty figuring out how these come apart. Here is a photo (with the cap removed). I thought I just unscrewed them, but something isn't releasing. Any advice?





Thanks.

The **** will unscrew from the metal shaft. Then the plastic base will also unscrew. Then the switch can be removed from underneath

Lift up the **** and you will observe a hole in the metal shaft. Place a pick in the hole and spin the rubber **** off.

As already mentioned the parts just unscrew.

Did the same myself a few weeks back and grabbed this photo that might help ...

On a similar note, anyone figure out a way to make the little car white again? I suppose someone with artistic talent might be able to paint it or something.

Do some searching for stickers. I seem to remember someone even made a sticker that looked like the 928 profile.

Perfect and affordable! I've got some other bits to place with Roger so I'll pile into that order.

Thanks,
Dustin
