switch removal procedure and radio/speaker question

specifically, the hazard switch and the door window switch unit. i'd like to take them out and clean out the accumulated dreck from the PO hauling his hound around to see if they can be made to function normally again.

also; i've successfully input the radio code and got the muzikwerfer somewhat operational again; however, the damn thing has virtually no sound through the speakers. the fade control at full front seems to be driving only the tweeters. ideas? i feel as if i'm hearing everything channelled through Thomas Dolby...("one of our submarines", et al)

Hazard switch can be pushed out after removing the four window switches.

The window switch box can be pried open and the contacts cleaned. Just be careful of missing parts.

I would use an old credit card to remove the switches.
