My manual shows two methods of retaining the switch.  One is a wire clip, 
No.4 in my drawing, but the text items 22 and 23 that refers to tool 18G 
1145 and the accompanying drawing Fig Na.1 shows lugs that are part of the 
switch and it's surround and these have to be depressed using the tool. 
Sounds like you have the wire retainer in which case the removal tool is 
irrelevant.  This seems to hook over the ends of the switch, it looks like 
if you could hook something over the bottom and pull down and back that 
would come free, then lift off the top, or vice-versa.  I've no experience 
of the padded dash but the switch is shown adjacent to the lower edge, so 
relatively accessible compared to some other components.  Maybe a head in 
the footwell, mirror and torch (flash-light) jobbie.
