broken wireless switch on Dell 1520 Inspiron

This question is not answered

I was having trouble connecting to my wireless router and discovered that the little switch on the back left side that turns the wireless card on and off is broken. Does anyone know if this switch can be operated remotely? How hard is it to replace this little switch? I'm not sure how to access it?  Thanks for any suggestions.
