Default Overhead console

Need some help please! About 3 weeks ago when the temps were around zero, I went to turn on the left dome light in the overhead console. When I did, I assume I must have broke the spring loaded switch that is under the clear bulb cover. So my questions is this:

Is there a fix for this without having to make a trip to the junkyard, and hope I can find another overhead console as good as mine, and second:
How the heck does the thing come off the headliner?

Oh, BTW this is on my 99 Ram 1500

Thanks!!!
KT

Nevermind, fixed it myself. Pulled it down off the underside of the top of the cab, and replaced the black electrical connection/contact post that came off whenI pushed the light cover to turn the light on.

I have the same problem with mine....you just pulled it down? It isn't attached with screws?

Yeah, the console is tabbed, and snaps into the underside of the cab roof. Not bad at all. Just be careful with it since it's plastic. I didn't want to have to go try to find one, and I knew it wouldn't be in as good of shape as mine.
