|Here a comparison of the old and new switches... The 'new' has metal instead of plastic around the contacts, and has a wider 'nut' area to get a wrench or socket onto. A short socket would not work with the old one, but may with the new (I did not check)|

Just like Tommy did, i left the bracket on. I did this my simply removing the gear selector on the driver's side (pops off) and only the one bolt underneath that linkage that holds the bracket on. Then I looped a closed-end wrench (either 7/8" or 13/16", can't remember now) over the old switch and just had to break it loose. It came out by hand. Installation in reverse. Took me 30 minutes total once I had the airbox out, including soldering and taping the connections.
