Hazard Switch Removal

Hi Guys,
Just purchased a 1998 Z3 M Roadster.
My problem is the Hazard switch works intermittently.
I would like to start by replacing the switch but I don't see an obvious way to remove it. I hope someone can give me a tip so I don't end up making a worse problem.
Thanks,
Bill

If you remove your armrest or tray (whichever you have) you should be able to work it out. The switch has a plastic spring clip on each of the short ends. There is an access point after removing the armrest to get to the left end of the switch. You should be able to release the clip on that end and then work the switch out.

Thanks for the info. Never considered removing the tray first. Makes sense.
Thanks!!
