If you don't have an electrohydraulic top (not available until 1998), then defroster switch installation will require some disassembly of the rear console. This is rather tedious though not difficult. The BMW instructions can be a bit hard to decipher but overall it is a fun project.

Oh, and be careful removing various components, you have a 16 yo car so plastic things are brittle. Some more helpful photos in this thread.
