(1) You can swap out the clock for a switch installation.

(2) If it were me, I'd install the switch on the center console, so I could flip it while my hand is in the vicinity shifting into reverse.

(3) It's also pretty common to mount new switches on the lower left dash panel.

See that green light between the steering wheel on the dash? That is an actual switch zone provided factory. That little square panel pops out and you can drill a hole onto it, mount a switch and pop it right back in.
Thats the switch for my hellas
