confused rear wiper switch help

rear wiper dead, no washer fluid either... i searched to no avail.

i took off the rear panel to test for power and here is the result...

of the 4 pins, one had constant power, other three dead. no change during switch operation (key on throughout test)

SO, i'm down to checking the switch/replacing if needed...how do i get it out? i tried to pull the bezel off, but it didnt come off easily so i stopped.

help please.

thanks!

Re: rear wiper switch help

There are two screws in the bezel that have to be removed before you can pop it out. They are located above the heat/ac controls. Once these are out, only spring clips hold the bezel. Pry gently at the 4 corners of the bezel until you can grip it with your fingers and pull it out. Don't pull or pry on the sides of the bezel or you could crack it - its pretty flimzy on the sides.
