Maybe Allan in Nebraska could help more but I think you have the wrong switch. A correct substitute switch would have a connector.

Agreed that switch does not match. For the life of me I cannot see/find/follow these 3 wires out to another connector to even think about removing the existing terminal block without just cutting them and that is not an option until I know what they do.

Hoping some of the real service people here can look this up for me.

Thanks for looking,

What is the make/part # of the replacement switch?

Do the 3 wires go into the rectangular connector hanging from the original switch?

If so, does the connector on the new switch have 3 corresponding openings?

If so, you may have to release their terminals from the old switch and transfer them to the connector body on the new switch. They can be release using a SMALL flat screwdriver inserted in the area where the terminal lock tab "catches", or, better yet, the correct tool..

Don't have the replacement switch/receipt handy at the computer, but seems like it is in a Dura-Last box.

Yes, those three wires end in the existing terminal block. Assuming the replacement block has matching openings (I think it probably does) how difficult is it to move these to the new block without the tools you show?

I have a set of jeweler's screwdrivers as well as a set of "dentist tools" so might be able to substitute for the tools you show. Problem is working under the dash with difficulty visualizing what is going on. Kind of hate to break something further if I can help it.

Thanks for the assistance,

Shouldn"t be TOO tough to do... Take pictures and/or make some CLEAR drawings FIRST showing wire locations and colors.

Just went through that yesterday with the connector on the shift sector lock on a 32006 Impala SS that has FOUR broken wires. THANKFULLY, there was a ting bit of colored insulation left in each terminal the wires had broken off from.
