Has anyone who's done this had a concern with how the 2 gears line up?

Great post Mike
I followed it and ran into only one problem, so I thought I would share. When you put the two halves of the switch back together make certain the the little gear is indexed correctly. I missed this initially and the daytime running lights would not turn off when the key was removed. Took it back apart and corrected that and it now works fine.
thanks for the great write up!
