   It is easiest with a powerful temperature controlled iron, not a cheapo.
The iron I use most is a low voltage iron which has a bit that reaches its
Curie point and looses its magnetic properties at the required temperature,

releasing the switch. Clean the bit on a wet non-abrasive pad, and use cored
self-fluxing solder.
