# Twist the catch on the hose connection. Pull the quick-release connector straight out. A small amount of water should run out. Tie the hose up.

Thanks! Now I need to figure out how to remove the brake light switch (two tabs should be pressed together?). I got the side panel out easily. I am checking to see if the lower plastic panel (where to unscrew?) on the steering column needs to be removed.

Yes press tabs together on connector. I found that using a flat screwdriver to get the tab to unlock the first time helps. Dont know about cover
