Emergency flasher switch

A week or two ago I needed to use my e-flashers on my '95 wagon and when I went to toggle the rocker switch, it was unusually difficult to press to the "ON" position! Well, in my attempt to force it with certainly more force than had ever previously been used, the switch basically froze up and it will not budge! My question is this: how difficult is the wood panel to remove to get to the switch? Thanks for any and all replies

Two screws in the bottom edge of the wood above the radio. Gently rock it out.

Had a few minutes free the other evening and thought I'd change out the new switch however after removing the woodgrain panel and the plastic bezel from around the bank of switches, I was unable to figure out how the switch actually 'snaps' out! Any suggestions so I won't end up breaking a piece of plastic unintentionally? Thanks...

Never mind. Just gently pull and wiggle back and forth and it comes right out!

The socket is 'stationary' or rigid inside the plastic housing.
