Welcome Aboard

It would help to know what switch you are referring too. Most times you do not need to remove a switch to test it. What is the issue you are trying to fix?

Welcome aboard.
Mike is right. Maybe you don't get Power to the switch, or you have other problem.

You should be able to remove the dash panel the switch is mounted on. From the backside, you should be able to use a voltmeter and test the connections on the switch directly.

To remove the switch, you should see the mounting tabs on the underside once the panel is removed.

Well there are a few things I want to do. One is to check the bilge pump switch, not getting power to the pump. I also want to use the Acc switches to add some LED lights

Thanks Shrew.

Do you think this whole panel is removable to access the back?

There should be mounting screws on the front of that switch plate. The switches should be attached to that. They will come off with the plate.

There should be two positives and a single ground to your bilge pump. One from the switch and one wired hot from the panel to the float switch.
