That is just what I needed. A fresh pair of eyes. I had read the long post extensively, but somehow missed that the wires tapped were to the mirror run. I kept poking at all the ones to the sunroof and light assembly. Wasted an hour yesterday!

Now that I realized what group of wires, it went in quickly. For those of you looking to remove the light and switch assembly, it is very easy. You need to pry down from the BACK part (closest to the windshield) to get it started and the it pops out with a bit of a tug on the side clips. DO NOT start pulling down from the end pointing to the back of the car or you could risk breaking this.
