How do you replace the safety button on a Mossberg 500. I got an aluminum replacement from eBay but the shop that sold it to me cannot tell me if I need the plate that is under the OEM safety. Go figure. Any help would be appreciated.

Glad it helped!
I've found YouTube to be a great source for info on most all types of firearms. It's really nice to have some detailed info of "what goes where/how it's put together", when your messing with guns. :mrgreen:

I replaced my safety switch. I just used a good screwdriver, tapped it a few times with a hammer, pushed down hard and turned. The screw came right out. It was easier than I thought it would be and the safety works a lot better now. I put a dab of grease on the ball bearing which not only lubes it but keeps it in place during reassembly.

I replaced the one in question, when it came of it was already gracked in one side of the screw hole, I did basically what you did but found out that the steel plate under the original had to be reused in order to work properly. the new one is aluminum. Most people believe that the originals break from recoil but what does it is exposure witch makes bristle then the recoil removes it once is cracked. any metal one should last a long time.
