It just screws out of the bracket that it's in. Nothing special.

LIKE falkore siad pretty easy, unplug the connector, use a 14 mm open end wrench to loosen the nut, unscrew the brake switch,,,
when reinstalling, make sure that the plunger on the brake switch is all the way in when brake pedal is released

Under the dash, driver's side, at brake pedal bracket,,
No need to remove the dash, it is a 5 minutes job ..very , very easy

get a flash lite, look under the dash and you should see it ..

the armature of the brake pedal pushes the plunger in when the brakes are not applied. If you push the brake with your hand with your head under the steering wheel, you will see it ..... use a flashlight as DH mentioned above.
