pry outwards on the switch button.  It will probably pop off the switch
body.  Then grab the edge of the switch body with a needle nose pliers
and tug it outwards, it will pop out of it's moorings.  Pull hard to
separate it from it's connector plug thing.

You might want to try cleaning it at that point and seeing if you can
get it to work again.  All my "push-push" dash switches were flaky when
I got my 90Q, and they responded well to cleaning.  The rear fog one is
still a bit so-so, but it almost never gets used and that does not help
