How do you retrieve a pushed in fuel catch switch?

Just went to fill up my 916 with fuel only to find that the dashboard switch for the fuel cap cover had gone in further than it should do. Managed to prize off the small surround only to find the switch and the wiring had disappeared into the dashboard void. I'm left with a switch cover, surround and using the emergency release in the boot until I can retrieve the actual switch . Any ideas would be greatly appreciated

having removed this before the entire unit surround will release when gently removed with a tiny flat head screwdriver, be careful not to leave marks but it is the way it is removed

this will then give you access to the button and you can fee if its fix or re knew
