Take the 2 screws out just above the guage cluster on the trim that goes around the outside of the dash. Put your steering wheel all the way tilted down. Take a small flat screwdriver and pry between the lower part of the trim were it connects to the dash and it will pop the clips out. Once you loosen those it should move away from the dash some. Take a small flat screwdriver and push the connecting clip from the headlight switch and it all should come out. Put the new dimmer switch in and reverse the process.

Why are you replacing the switch? If the fan works only on high speed, replace the fan resistor. There was a TSB for this.

Usually a switch will only let you choose between ON and OFF, but a dimmer switch will let you change between Brighter or Darker.

The dimmer switch is located near the floor on the left side of the steering column. The dimmer switch and ignition switch are secured by the same two screws. The dimmer switch will be the one on top. Loosen and remove the screws, disconnect the wiring harness from the dimmer switch and replace with the new switch, complete the assembly in reverse order.

No a switch just opens and closes a circuit. A switch can be replaced by a dimmer switch. The dimmer switch will fit in the same enclosure that the switch is removed from.
