Just the switch itself, or the whole right control quadrant?

I just did my last week after I figured how to remove the throttle cables. Springs won't go flying. The hardest part that I found was maneuvering the switch out of the assembly to take it apart. Not a lot of slack on the 5 or 6 wires leading to the switch. Good Luck!

Thanks for all the info. I managed to get the switch changed out safely and surprisingly quickly. The button itself had broken off (don't ask...5 kids....). The link was awesome!.
