Hey, i am currently restoring a Zenith Z-150 and these Green Alps keep bugging me for hours now. They seem to not let go even if i try to open them the same way you usually open Alps Switches. Is it even possible to open these without having to desolder?

Thanks in advance!

The LED is soldered in and you can't take the switch off over it. You'll need to desolder at least the LED.
