You don't say if the key is broken off in the switch or if the key is lost. If it is broken off in the switch, you should be able to use a small screwdriver to turn it to remove the switch. BE SURE TO DISCONNECT THE BATTERY CABLE FIRST!!!

    I have the pan unbolted and I am not sure if there is a way to get this pan off without lifting the motor. The crossmember and counter weights on the crank seem to make this job harder than it looks.
