There is a plastic strip along the edge of the fairing running from top to bottom.It just pops off,but be gentle.After you get that off you'll see a couple of screws holding the switch plate.Undo the screws and lift up on the outside.The inside hooks under the inner edge.

BTW The 1800 doesn't have air shocks.It has a hydraulic preload adjustment on the single coil over shock.
If I'da known it would last this long,I'da taken better care of it.

At a dealer or a good electronics store should have several different types that would work

My son repaired the switch but there is no lights nor compressor adjustment, can anybody help me figure what to do in order to fix this problem? And thanks for your help as the switch was only halfway installed!

Just noticed you have a trike!!!! Can't tell the brand???
You do know there are conversions that do not use the OEM rear hydraulic preload shock

The trike is a 2002 Honda Goldwing GL1800 and the up-down button is no good
