Here are the directions I was able to find for you. I hope it helps. I attached a picture too.

Disconnect the negative battery cable at the battery.
Remove the four screws from inside the defroster duct (instrument panel pad securing screws).
Remove the screws which are under the lip of the instrument panel pad.
Remove the instrument panel pad.
On models equipped with air conditioning, remove the instrument panel cluster bezel and the cluster.
Remove the radio speaker bracket.
Pull the headlamp switch **** to the ON position, depress the locking button for the **** and shaft (located on the switch), and remove the **** and shaft.
Remove the switch bezel (retainer).
Disconnect the wiring from the switch and remove the switch.
To install, position the switch into place and connect the wiring to the switch.
Install the switch bezel (retainer).
Push the headlamp switch **** into the switch. (It may be necessary to depress the **** release button.

As stated, w/AC, you must remove the instrument panel cluster-completely to gain access to the switch and speedometer cable for removal. I found out that in order to easily release the speedometer cable that it is recommended to disconnect the cable @ the transmission so the cluster can be moved forward towards the steering wheel. Must remove the (2) 13mm bolts @ steering column bracket to lower the column. This will allow easier access to the speedometer cable release spring. Use a long handle regular type screwdriver to release the speedometer release spring. Note: the switch it self can not be removed unless the instrument panel cluster is removed. I also agree that you still have to remove the dash pad and radio speaker for easy access.
