You must be talking about the integrated contorl panel in the center of the dash (oval shape with all the controls), the manual says this to remove: "Apply a light spreading force on tools and pull integrated control panel out of instrument panel"
There is a spring left and right behind the panel, that holds in the dashboard.

Heater switch replacment


Hello! it's my job to make things as easy for the customer as possible...Therefore I must ask why you want to replace the heater switch? Is it because you have lost one or two of the switch speeds? Your vehicle is noted for loss of the Blower Motor Resistor...
Changing the Heater switch means removal of the Climate Control Assembly which is not the easiest of jobs...I've included the process...But are you sure the blower resistor is OK? If you have lost 1,2, or all blower motor speeds it's more than likely the Resistor pack. And a lot easier to change...

Heater and air conditioner blower switch.


Check the resistor first. It may be bad. Should be under pass. side of the dash close to blower motor mounted in bottom of evap case. Remove it and try known good one first before going at the switch. If it works on high then the switch may be okay. Good luck.

Blower motor doesn't blow anymore, This blows


If it blows only on high speed, it is the resister.
If it does not work at all, check fuses first. See owner manual for location.
Then check blower motor by jumping 12 volts from battery to blower motor. Make sure ground is jumped too.

If it works now, it's the control panel. If not, it is the motor.

Heater Blower Motor Switch Resistor(s)
The front heater blower motor switch resistor has the following features:
  • The assembly is located in the engine compartment on the evaporator housing (19850) next to the blower motor assembly (19805).
  • Three resistor elements are mounted on the resistor board to provide four blower motor speeds.
  • Depending on the heater blower motor switch position, series resistance is added or bypassed in the A/C blower motor circuit to decrease or increase A/C blower motor speed.
  • An overheating device (thermal limiter) will open the resistor coil circuit when the temperature reaches 121°C (250°F), interrupting the blower motor operation in all speeds except high.
  • The thermal limiter cannot be reset and is not serviceable.

Blower problem


The blower motor resistor:
  • is located on the heater core and evaporator core housing near the blower motor.
  • has three resistor elements mounted on the resistor board to provide four blower motor speeds.
  • depending on the blower motor switch position, series resistance is added or bypassed in the blower motor circuit to decrease or increase blower motor speed.
  • has an overheating device (thermal limiter) that will open the resistor coil when the temperature reaches approximately 184°C (363°F) , interrupting the blower motor operation in all speeds except high.
  • is serviced as an assembly. The thermal limiter cannot be reset and is not serviceable.
REMOVAL
  1. Lower the glove compartment.
  2. Remove the screws and position aside the 4x4 control module.
  3. Remove the blower motor resistor.
4 Disconnect the electrical connector. 5 Remove the screws and the blower motor resistor. INSTALLATION
  1. To install, reverse the removal procedure.
