    Hard to follow what your asking.

    Do you have 2 switches that are "pushed in"? Help us out.

    If I remember correctly there's clips behind the panel that hold the switch's in place, I think those clips are plastic, which would mean they break easily.
    I've hit that switch with my knee once or twice and worried about doing the same thing.

    How do I get to it? Does that entire plate come out or do I need to disassemble the skirt?

    You have what appears to be an LTZ interior. You will need to remove the lower part of the dash on the drivers side. After that you will be able to un-clip the piece that holds the light switch assembly.

    I do have a LTZ. I got lucky, I was able to pop the fuse panel on the side and access it. i used a pencil to guide and snap it back into place. It appears there are no broken clips.
    Thanks for everyone's help.

    We all learned something today, thanks for sharing.

    If it happens again, the trim piece just below the switches, will easily remove.

    That's good to know, the fuse panel. Will have to remember that.
