Default How the hell do you change the rear defroster light?

I have a 2000 RS and the little bulb on the switch burned out; the rear defroster still works thank God. I've pulled the front panel surrounding the stereo, pulled the clips and screws off the little compartment above the vents and it will move but not come out. For the life of me, I don't know how to pull the switch to swap out the bulb.

You can pull the switch out with a good amount of pressure. If you are crafty enough you can take the switch apart and get a replacement bulb from radio shack.

4wdrift...I think you're going to need to break it down for me Crayola Style.

Do I pry the switch off with a screw driver from the bottom/side, do I need to pull some screws, pull a panel and then pull the switch?

I just don't want to break something.
