So I went to replace my interior light door switches today with a couple bratman2 kindly sent me (legend bloke). However removing the old ones resulted in disintegrated bits in my hand and the bottom halves of the switches and wiring recoiled into the holes out of reach of my long nose pliers.

Is the cavity accessible by removing the plastic door frame trim or am I looking at making a retrieval tool from a coathanger ?

Cheers, Richo.

Yes it is. Can be a fiddle getting the trim around the end of the seat belt, might be easier to unbolt the seat belt first and then remove the trim. Be careful removing the plastic cover that is just next to the front/side of the seat as they have a tendency to split along the middle.

Recently got at my back passage for these pesky things without seat belt unbolt. It is necessary I think to rip the seat out for an easier life
