confused on switch replacement
Replace both switchs at the same time.
Look for the wire that connects both switches, and you will see it connects to another wire or wires.
This should be the feed to the switches.
Connect them unde a wire nut, and run a pigtail to each switch.
Use the top or bottom, does not matter.
The other wire on each switch is the feed to the light or receptacle.
Put each wire on the other screw of the switch.
