No need to remove the steering wheel.  Take off the knee panel under the
steering wheel (couple screws behind the dash endcap, another under the
steering column and a fourth down by the brake pedal) and undo the screws
holding the top of the switch surround (two Phillips heads from underneath
the surround).  That'll get you adequate access to the connector so you can
work it off the switch.    

Of course, if the plastic has melted off the connector, it's worked its way
onto the studs on the switch, so you'll need to clean that off too.  I
found a replacement connector by purchasing a lights pigtail from someone
and figured out how to take it apart using a couple little screwdrivers
very carefully so I could fix this problem on our V8 #1 by splicing in a
clean piece of wire and replacing the connector.  

You want to make relaying the headlights part of this repair.
