Steering column wiper switch

(1990 BMW 325i)
in Vancouver, WA on January 17, 2011
The Wiper Switch sometimes is intermittant in its operation. The switch has three modes: Intermittant; low speed; and high speed. Once in awhile when I put the switch to either of these modes the wipers do not work. I have to move the switch up and down to all three modes and sometimes the wipers work and sometimes not. Also the mode might be on low speed and the wipers just stop working all together. How hard is it to change the switch? How do you get to it? How do I check that the switch is the culprit of the problem?
