Headlight Switch Shaft

Is there a trick to get the Headlight switch shaft to stay in the switch itself on my CJ. This is a new switch and shaft, and I insert the shaft and pull to activate the lights and the shaft pulls right out. Can anyone help me out please?

You need to give it a little hit on the end to get it to seat in the clip.

Re: Headlight Switch Shaft

yeah, I just replaced mine not too long ago, hold onto the back side of the switch, and push it in with some force from the front and you should hear it click in.
