Door switch for dome light

Just the other night I was getting into my car and I noticed the dome light did not turn on when I opened my door. I figured I probably had it in the wrong position so I checked it but it was in the right position. Then I figured maybe the light was burnt out but I turned it to map and dome and both worked. So then I went around to the passenger side and opened that door and it turned on from that side. So then I tried messing with the door open trigger by just pushing and wiggling them cuz I thought maybe they were just sticking or something (theres 2, not sure which is for the light). Anyways this problem is frustrating to me, although it's not a huge deal but I want to see my keyhole and stuff when I open my door and it's one of those little things that should just work right.

Any suggestions/help? It's worked fine for the past year and a half and started out of no where. I hope I don't have to have the switches replaced unless it's cheap.

Those switches are real cheap. I think around $5.00
One of them should be for your ign key warning buzzer,
the other is for dome lamps if memory serves me.
Good luck.

Do they just pop out or does a whole bunch of stuff have to be removed? I am mechanically inclined but right now I mostly only know simple american car stuff and my MB is the daily driver so I don't like to dig in too far. If it's a fairly simple fix I'll do it but if not I may just take it in.
