My 1996 Brake light clip needed to spread open with a screw driver(some what like a round spring) and with another screw driver push the switch up the pin. The switch will push the clip off the Pin. The pin has a head that needs to clear clip while the spring clip is spread open. It took me a while to figure out.

I'm trying to change my brake light switch on my 1995 gmc Yukon. I can't figure out how to take the clip off that hold the switch on

Most GM brake light switches are held in the hole by a steel clip that grabs on the plastic threads. To remove the switch, you just grab the switch and pull it out. Requires a little effort. When you replace the switch, it pushes back into the clip fairly easily as the clip has one way tabs. You push the switch in until it bottoms out on the brake pedal arm. The threads are just there for the clip to grab onto. In rare cases where the clip fails to retain the switch, I have had to screw a nut onto the back side of the switch to prevent it from backing out of the clip. This is the case sometimes when you are reinstalling the same clip. Otherwise a new one will generally hold because of the new plastic threads.

The brake lights on my 94 nissan pickup won't turn off. Do I need to replace the brake light switch? If not what could be the source of the problem and/or what do I need to do to fix the problem?

This problem is caused by a defective brake light switch, the switch is either out of adjustment (it is a threaded adjustment) or is defective, it is located under the dash and at the top of the arm the brake pedal is attached to. There will most likely be a plastic panel under the dash you will need to remove to see the switch. Here is a picture of the brake light switch.
