Disconnect a battery cable, reach up behind dash and along the metal side of the switch there should be a small push button pull out the knob like you have turned on the headlights then push in the button as you pull out the knob and shaft as a unit, then you can use a pair of needle nose pliers to loosen the 4 slot nut that holds the switch in place, lower switch out from under dash unplug wiring, plug in new switch and reassemble. put the knob and shaft in the hole and push in, you should hear a slight click, pull out on knob to see if it is locked into the switch, reconnect battery and check switch operation. The only other option I have seen is the knob being held on by a small set screw, if that is the casr then just loosen set screw enough to remove knob then remove switch as above.
