    confused Removing internal door pannel

    Hi guys, my electric window buttons are sticking and need to be pressed really hard to work. How do i go about taking the door pannel off to gain access to clean or replace the electrics unit?


    Cheers, Brad

    yep - small flat head screwdriver will pop the switch and surrounding cover out - then you can strip it down

    On the passenger switch I used a blunt butter knife. I find small screwdrivers don't spread the load enough and you can get a chip or dent where you try it, the knife being wider and probably thinner.

    Sure there's a link between a butter knife and spreading....

    ok , thanks for the tips. I've got the unit out now, just looking on ebay and replacement part seems to be about £10 so not a big deal If cleaning the contacts doesnt work.

    Thanks for the help people
