Switch Installation In Dash Question

On my 2022 4RUNNER SR5 Premium: Please- How does one go about properly removing one of these switch covers on the left side of the dash? I donít want to break anything.

Iíve ordered a switch and relay kit for raptor lights, and the switch Iíve chosen will fit in one of these holes in the dash if I can learn how to properly remove one of these small covers.

Thanks so much, Rick.

You can easily remove the piece of trim just above the switches, the part that wraps around the side. Gently pull, itís just held on with clips. Then youíll be able to push the switch blank out from the rear.

All righty! Perfect. So that whole panel has to come off first.

Iím glad I checked in here, because I was going to start by prying and picking at one of those switch blanks themselves.

Thank you kind sir for that intel. Very much appreciated!

The panel that contains the mirror controls and wraps around the left. When dealing with plastics always be gentle.

Not too gentle. Pull as hard as you're comfortable with and then pull just a little bit harder to release the clips. The actual switch caps also come out but you should have some plastic trim tools to pry them.

There must be a few hundred pictures here of all sorts of parts taken apart, including my build thread, so you are not attempting anything unique or difficult.

Hey OP

Iíve done this exact task on my 2016, a number of times.
I wouldnít recommend going for it without watching YouTube videos first. You gotta YouTube these things sir. Thereís good advice in the answers here, but thereís more to it, donít believe - look at my photos. donít be that guy who busts clips forever
Goodluck

i usually just pull the whole dash section (that contains those switches) out/down and squeeze my hand in there and the blanks have tabs top and bottom you squeeze, push the blank out. pretty simple. I dont mess with the panel above the switches. prolly easier to pull out the top panel though.
