NOTE: It is not necessary to remove the Steering Column Control Module (SCCM) from the steering column to replace the left multi-function switch (2).

Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.

WARNING: Wait two minutes for the system reserve capacitor to discharge before servicing any airbag or steering column components.

Remove both the upper and lower shrouds from the steering column See: Steering and Suspension Steering Steering Column Cover Service and Repair Steering Column Shroud - Removal.
Remove the one screw (2) that secures the left multi-function switch (3) on the right side of the clockspring (1).

Pull the switch (2) straight away from the clockspring (1) far enough to access the electrical connector (3) to disconnect it.
Disconnect the instrument panel wiring harness from the back of the left multi-function switch.
Remove the switch (2) from the clockspring (1).

You should not use dealers anyway. They are overpriced.
