I believe that sensor just pops out like a fuse.

However if the new sensor does not fix the problem you may need to pull out your headlamp switch and inspect it for burnt wires at the connector..not uncommon among these cars.

All though 95'* are the most likely year for burnt headlamp switches.

I to appreciate a clean dash board. A technique I use is do not spray anything on the dash. Spray the cleaner or what ever in a rag than wipe your dash down. This way you wont feel like your going to short anything out. Less mes on the windshield to.
