This is how it came apart.
The switch was broken but functional. I decided that I had to figure out something to slip over that metal prong. See the little nut? I used tweezers to remove that. The ceramic body came apart quite easily.
Pretty nice tidy wiring, eh? Since the original wiring had that little knot I decided to tie one as well.
I found a washer in the ice cube tray where I keep my parts( an attempt at staying organized). I had no idea where it belonged. Fortunately I had another light and figured it out. I took this photo so that I would understand how the pieces fit back together. I still managed to mount the light backwards (see previous post). I had forgotten to crimp the light back together before I mounted the light. I think that is where I got confused.
Each time I wire something and the fuse doesn't blow and the thing actually works, JOY.
