Hi, anybody know how to take apart the switch socket on the headlight of my D7 as I managed to pull a wire out by mistake and can not get it back in, tried pulling the outside cover back but with no luck, do not want to damage socket.

Thanks.

You need to peel back the cover and solder the cable back in its appropriate tag.

 

The covers are usually age hardened and wont come off easily.

Warming the cover with something like a hairdryer helps.
