Help - Steering Lock contact switch removal

I am replacing the steering lock on my 1981 240D. Everything has gone smooth getting it out of the car. Stupid question - How do you get the black plastic Contact Switch off the side of the steering lock ? I have tried the key in every position but still no luck. Can anyone help ?

Contact Switch came off

Ok, I finally got it off. For future reference for anyone else in this situation the lock should be turned all the way to the right. I used a screwdriver to do since the reason I'm changing it is the lock is worn and did not want the tumbler to get stuck. By doing this the Contact Switch plunger is in the up position and I was then able to force it off the rails that hold it. It took some force but I got it.
