Default Rear Wiper Switch

Hey Guys, I have a crazy question for you. Does anyone here have a problem activating their rear wiper? I can't get the frigging switch to pull out at all on my wiper stem. Is there a trick to it or is mine just stuck? If it's stuck, how big of a job is it to take apart and clean or is that even possible? I don't think it's ever been used. At least, not since I got it 6 months ago. Any suggestions are appreciated. I've already tried widening the gap a little and spraying some CRC electrical contact cleaner in there and that didn't work. Tried some WD-40. That didn't work either. I don't want to put the vise grips on it and try pulling it as I'm afraid I'll break it. Suggestions? I have no money to spend to get another one. Please keep that in mind.

it's a rocker switch. what do you mean "pulls out"? the switch is a DPDT toggle switch that is inserted from the back of the panel.

i had a problem with my wiper moving a few inches and stopping. the problem was the motor. specifically the brushes sticking inside the motor. it's a part chrysler cant seem to make properly.

the two attached pictures show the board burned to the point the brush holders fell off. this is our caravan motor, identical to the PT. in my PT old crusty grease caused the rear wiper to fail and it was fixable.

Ehhhhh, never mind. Had a brain fart! I gotta find some weed or alcohol. Being straight and sober for the past 27 years has really made me stupid!
