Left handlebar switch replacement

Has anyone replaced the left handlebar switch assembly on a GL1800? If so, how much of the plastic must be removed? Is it a one man job?

What YEAR GL1800? Is it still under warranty? If so take it to the dealer!
Do you have a service manual--great description how to do this? As well as Fred Harman's videos at Angelfire.

Also consult any of the online parts suppliers and their online parts fiche to see what is available--Cyclemax, HDL, and so on!

I would say it is a one person job--not sure where the second person could really help except maybe to watch for falling parts and help locate them. When removing anything near the top is is always a good idea to cover the area below with rags or towels so if parts do fall, they can't go down into the great unreachable areas under everything. Many of us have lost nuts, bolts, screws, springs and other little pieces that just fell into no man's land.

It is a 2004 and not under warranty.
