window switch replacement
I ordered new switches and replaced them -- it was rather simple. When you push the window button a slot appears on the part of the button that rises, you can pry the switch up by alternatively prying both sides of the switch (pushing the button and prying on the side that rises) unitl the switch rises from the console. The switches then simply separate from the wiring harness and the new switch is put in place and pressed into the console.
Simple elegant repair -- well thought out engineering.
