Remove the center screw below the headlight switch, and the center screw below the wiper switch. Grab hold of both switches and gently pull towards you. The plastic around the gauge cluster should unsnap from the dashboard. Unplug the headlight switch from the wire harness behind it, and remove the other 2 screws below it. Gently pull on the dimmer and outer rings. They should slide off. The switch will fall out at this point. Installation is the reverse of removal.
