Window Switch Destruction/(fix)
Posted by CY [Email] (more from CY) on Fri, 6 Aug 2010 21:48:48
So my driver's window wasn't operating smoothly last week. It would only go down in full-auto-down-mode. So I instantly rip the unit out of the car and pulled it apart at my desk. I've uploaded the photos onto my zooomr page.
So it turns out that you can't take the actual switches off the unit without breaking the tabs that lock them in. But I only broke half the tabs, and tried to bend the remains back into position, so I think if I don't try to pull them off anymore, they'll stick. (they aren't loose, but I'm not gonna test to see how strong they hold!).
I didn't have any contact cleaner, so I just sprayed WD40 all up on the switch contact area, and it seemed to have done the trick. I reassembled everything and my window switches all work 100% again! Next time it fails, I'm probably looking at $300...
Hope this helps someone!
