LOL... sorry my dimmer switch did the same thing. I removed the access panel underneath the steering wheel and fished it back through the hole. I used 'DUMB DUMD', sorry that's what we call it, black play dough, to keep the switch in place. I just leave the dimmer on max since then.
As for the cluster you don't have to remove the steering wheel. just follow the instructions in the link below. I did and my cluster is just dandy now. http://community.webshots.com/album/219881572pOuUKG
