broken ceiling light toggle switch
 
Hi Folks,
Can anyone shed light on how to remove/repair/open a ceiling light toggle switch? today I switched it on, and am unable to toggle it off. I had to remove the cover and remove the bulbs so that it would not drain my battery.

Thanks.

Thanks for the quick reply.
Am attaching a picture of the switch..
The base (touching the ceiling) is a slightly darker shade then the toggle and its surround.

slide something flat and thin behind the large outer cover and GENTLY pry the cover away from the switch section. This will expose the switch it's self, which is fasten to a bracket of sorts. From there you can fix and/or replace. Be gentle and go slow.
Best,

Unfortunately, that switch has not been available from Airstream for some time.

Lucky you - I have a couple you may have - The outer frame measures 2 and 1/4 by 1 and 3/8ths inch. No lettering on toggle. PM me an address and I'll send them to you.
