mirror switch replacement- door panel removal required?

So I broke the switch to select the mirrors that's on the door panel. Replacement just arrived.

Is it necessary to remove the entire door panel to swap this bad boy, or do you think it can be popped out? Looking at the switch, I'm thinking it may be able to get popped out if I'm careful, but wanted input from here before I go trying anything....

Pic of the new switch: note the clips on it...will they allow it to be pulled through?

I would do it right and pull the door panel off, it's about 10 min of work. I don't think you would be able to compress those clips from the outside.

You'll need to pull the panel to do it correctly. Other wise you'll end up with a bigger problem possibly.
