I don't have the P/N at work but I can get it this evening if someone else doesn't beat me to it.

Here is a link to a DIY which shows how to remove the door sill plate

I had mine replaced thanks to PCNA. Mine was caused due to corrosion. Looks like the switch does not like getting damp. Attached is another R&R instruction that adds a little water proofing to the fix.

Thank you for this post. Your Word document just helped me make quick work of a replacement switch.
