You go to the resource section

and download the manuals and you'll find everything you need to know in there.

Personally I don't like spending money unnecessarily, and see no reason to replace a switch that is not defective - testing switches is not difficult - and as I said earlier, all you need to know, including how to test the switches is in the manual.

Just so that you're aware, there are six switches in the SuperSelect mechanism, not five, the sixth one is on the front differential assembly, and there are several other potential causes for the flashing lights - it does not have to be a defective switch.

Hi I've decided to change all

Hi I've decided to change all 5 switchs on the gearbox, is it just a case of remove old unit and replace with new unit or is there more to it? Thanks any tips will be appreciated. Andre

It's a straightforward remove and replace...

Unplug, unscrew, remove, and then replace in the reverse sequence - please note the switches are not identical, and please be aware that defective switches are not the only possible cause of flashing lights in the superselect display.

As I have already mentioned I'm not a great fan of replacing parts without proper testing, and switches are amongst the easiest things to test - having said that - it's your money - it's your choice.
