SharePoint 2013: Delete current failing Search Service Application

This should be easy, just use Central Administration > Manage Service Application, select the Search Service Application and click delete-button in the ribbon. Failed, again.

In order to make this to work, you need to stop the sptimerv4…

>net stop sptimerv4

… and delete cache files located in \ProgramData\Microsoft\SharePoint\Config\{Guids Folders} where cache.ini is located. CAUTION: Don’t delete the cache.ini-file. Just edit the file and use another six digit random number. When you’re done, start the service again. Reference: An update conflict has occurred, and you must re-try this action.

>net start sptimerv4

And finally the ribbon delete-button works. You’re failing Search Service Application is gone. Now (finally) you can create a new Search Service Application, with a fresh topology and a working index component.
