    Turn switch to accessory position, then use a small screwdriver to depress the little button under the switch knob. There's detailed info in the self help tips area, and a good video on Youtube.

    It's all explained in detail in the HD Service Manual but it doesn't sound like you have one of those. Best investment in your bike you can make if you're going to do work on it yourself.

    Your '10 may be different than my '07, but the S.M. says for fairing cap removal
    (the black part that rocker switches are in), remove the T27 torx screw on left and right side. With forks turned to left stop, reach behind right side and disconnect the 12 position switch connector plug, then remove fairing cap. I don't know if the plug releases are on top or sides of the connector, not clearly pictured in S.M.
