How do you replace a headlight switch?

You need to reach in under the dash until you feel the switch. On the side opposite the wired side, work your way toward the dash until you feel a little button. It is spring loaded. Push it in, then pull out the switch knob from the front while holding the button in. Once the knob is out completely, you will see a screw holding the switch to the dash - undo this and bob's your uncle (in my case, my nephew).

The wiper knob has a clip you release, and the headlight knob comes out of the switch with the rod attached. There is a button on the headlight switch you press to release the knob and rod together.

Cannot get the windshield wiper and light knobs off in order to remove the cover. They do not just pull off?

For everyone's future reference, the windshield wiper knob has a spring metal clip holding the knob to the shaft.
There is a small slot under the knob. Starting at the back edge of the knob, use a small screwdriver to push into that slot in the same direction you want to remove the knob.
That will push the metal clip and release the knob.
