    Default window switches aren't working

    Hi everyone. Were having problems with our drivers side window switch. It's works the passenger side. The drivers side only goes down once in a blue moon. Also seems the boot bottom on that pannel is intermittently working. Are these a comon fault. Hoping it's jst a case of getting a new switch.
    Any advice would be great.

    Should hopefully just be as Ian says. It's a very easy job to pop the switch out, take to bits, and clean the contacts. 10-15 min job. Certainly worth a try before shelling out on a replacement.

    Mine work back to front, push up to go down, and down to go up! unsure whether others have suffered the same problem, suspect mine are upside down.
