It's been six years since I took the bedroom one off to remove the generator wires, but I just went out and pulled it - it comes straight out on 6 pins. The connectors that I removed are the same as you are looking at, and they also just pull off. Grab 'em with pliers and PULL!

Don’s right. They are just simple spade connectors. However rather than pulling, it’s better to insert a thin flat blade screwdriver between the white plastic piece and panel, then rotate the screwdriver such that it spreads the two apart. Have never had the rear bedroom panel off. The front panel had a pin on each corner of the panel that slipped into a guide. The flat blade screwdriver technique worked there as well. Insert the blade between the panel and wall then twist.

Yeah, prying probably better than pulling, and less likely to break a tooth when it comes free! The bedroom panel has the same pins as the front one, but one on each side to make a total of six.

Thanks Van and Don, I wasn't referring to "pulling" the panel off as I have had two of the three off several times using the method you guys mentioned...I was referring to pulling the wires off the blades of the switches. I wasn't able to get them off by pulling firmly and was afraid to put some power behind the pull thinking there must be a trick to it...I know there's a hole in the blades and thought the plastic tips on the wires might have a nodule that slips into the hole. If I understand you correctly I should just pull the wires off the switch using pliers, is that correct?

On the pulling of the panel you said "Also does the black panel in the bedroom come off the same way as the other two without having to take off the wallpaper trim piece around it?" and the answer is yes.


I mentioned pliers to pull the connector off, but I have to agree with Van that rotating a flat blade under the connector would be better. In any case, it is just tight and should come straight off.
