With a flashlight you should be able to see in there enough to do it. Worst case you might have to crack open the column surround which is not too hard to do. Any of the videos (Tims) that show removing the steering column show how to get this open.

Good luck.
To quote myself.

Just get a little silicon grease on the pivot and you'll be good as new for years to come. At least try it before you tear into anything. The 2 minute solution before the 2 hour solution I always say.

Nothing wrong lubing the pivot .

However, I believe I changed mine in less then 5 to 10 minutes tops. It's that simple.
As I changed it twice because my Chinese one was junk it wouldn't stay actived around turns.:/
