Sunroof Switch Short?

Hey all!
Still a noob around here but absolutely in love with my Escape, just got done taking it on a 1200 mile roadtrip and it ran like a dream! (First car never to have problems with the trip). I am noticing that when I try to open and close the sunroof, I have to hold the switch practically in the middle (it is a toggle type switch, where you have to hold it to close the sunroof). I am wondering how to remove the panel/switch so I can check to see if it is a loose connection or short or something. If anyone has a diagram or some advice on how to do this I would really appreciate it, as I'll get charged my first born at a garage or dealership!

I don't have a wiring diagram but I've replaced the switch a few times because of this problem. It is very easy to get at. At the end of the following thread are a few pics from the last time I replaced it:

There was a member here who said it was the contacts in the switch and there was something he applied that made it work fine. I'm not sure if it was just a cleaner or some sort of contact enhancer. If I can figure out what it was, I'll let you know...
Good luck!
