I found this very informative youtube video:

Its for a 1996 Explorer but is the same for a 1995 to 1997 Explorer.

Had the same problem with mine except it was the black strip in the video that was dirty. Cleaned it up and all is well once again. FYI, those switches are expensive...

Good find.
I guess, in the worst case scenario, you can grab one from a junk yard.. shouldn't cost too much.
