Headlight Switch removal

So I am trying to remove the headlight switch to replace it with a headlight switch that has foglights but I am having trouble removing the trim pieces. Do I need to remove the A/C vent above the headlight switch? Any ideas?

Hmmm i dont think so.. if mem serves me correct you need to remove the lower portion of the dash and go in from behind..

if you gotta remove the vent its easy.. Squeeze it and then pop it out with a flat head..

That's funny cause when I removed the lower steering column panel I found 1 little bolt, removed it and off it came (with the vent), then the 3 screws for the switch & harness.
