Question 64 Impala Heater/AC Dash Controls Installation

Hello,
I have a 64 Impala SS with A/C. Recently I had to replace the blower switch which sits on top of the Heater/AC controls on the lower dash. I replaced the switch but I'm having trouble getting the power connection attached to the switch after getting the controls back in the dash. I'm not able to connect before installing the controls. It would be great if anyone could give me some tips on how to do this. Thanks!

Update:
I removed the radio which made it somewhat easier to see the connectors. I still had to use a small screwdriver to gently pry the bottom of the switch up so I could get the power connector attached. Dash is all back together for the first time since I started this project which began with replacing the heater core.

Sounds like you got it, but I am guessing an easier way exists somewhere. I know I was able to unplug mine when I removed it, just not sure if I did it while the controls were bolted in place or after I dropped the controls down. Also not sure if the radio was still in it or not.
