BMW Center Console Switch Sign In

I recently purchased a 2000 BMW 328i with a 2.8L engine. It is in excellent condition with a new rebuilt engine.
The only thing which I can find wrong is the center console combination switches for the hazard warning flashers and the door lock switch. I am assuming that the problem is the switch itself because neither of the switches will "click" when you press them. The switch itself is only $32 - cheap for a BMW !!

My problem is how do I disassemble the center console so that I can get at the switch area to replace it? Do I pry the parts of the center console off....are the parts snap in or do I need to locate screws to disassemble? I would appreciate any help from someone who has attempted something like this.

if this were my car i would greatly consider getting a manual for it. its the only way to get it done properly and would show you how with pics. these parts on the console may break and i would suspect to be expensive for your car. just buy the manual. it will pay for itself.

Thanks for the purchase the manual suggestion. Neither Haynes or Chilton publish the manual for the 328i. The latest they go is to 1998 and I understand that the 1998 model differs considerably from the 2000.
