    Toggle Switch Nut Removal

    Hello,

    I've got a 2018 Explorer and want to replace the pick guard. I cannot unscrew the toggle switch nut. Any advice for getting a good enough grip on this thing to unscrew it?


    Regards,

    Jonathan

    I usually try to grip the nut with my fingertips and turn the switch with my other hand.

    If that doesn't work there is a special tool.

    Last, grip it with pliers. Try first with a thick rag in between the pliers and nut, but if that doesn't work, just grip it with the pliers then replace it.

    If the switch is on a pick guard like the classic models all you gotta do is unscrew the guard twist the switch while holding onto the nut, or using cloth covered pliers to hold the nut.
    The older I get, the better I was.
