1999 Olds Intrigue - Dashboard Bezel

Need to get to the emergency flasher switch. Seems that the turns signal are routed through the switch....the connector at the switch has become loose, causing the flashers to work intermittently. Do I need to remove the
bezel to get to the switch? Is it just snapped in place? I assume that before removing the bezel, I need to remove the lower trim below the steering wheel and the trim around the steering column, behind the steering wheel. Any assistance is appreciated. Thank you, Joe

Thank you Silver Surfer for the detailed instructions! I really appreciate the assistance. I plan to do the service work today. Will I need to replace the switch or has the connector just come loose from the switch? This vehicle belongs to my brother. He also mentioned intermittent operation of the AC. I wonder if a connector has come loose there as well? I will advise what I find, following the servicing. Thank you again. Best regards, Joe
