Passenger Electric Window Switch

Postby tinkythomas » Sat Oct 12, 2019 9:31 pm

Hi, the passenger electric window switch has failed on my 2011 R. Has anyone attempted replacing the switch and if so have any tips? Do I need to remove the door card to get access to it?

Thanks

No need to remove for card. Use a trim tool or similar to carefully prise the switch out and unplug it.

Thank you very much for the advice. I was worried I would have to remove the door card. Sure I saw a a post, can't remember where now that said you had to remove it.

I will take a look during the week


Thanks again!

Finally got around to having a look at the window switch but using plastic trim tools I cannot get the switch and housing out of the door card. I didn't want to use too much force but its well and truly in there. I cannot see how it is held in place!? Any further advice, anyone changed a switch before?

Just to inform I have now replaced the window switch. I had to remove the door card to get access to the switch housing clips. Removing the door card wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be.

Apologies, I was sure you could dislodge the clip without having to remove the door card. Glad you got it sorted.

No problem at all. Maybe it is possible to do it without removing the door card, but I couldn't figure out how!? Thanks again for your help though.
