    Default Door Switches

    Both the door/window switch units on our Vec are playing up, it take several stabs to get the windows to go up or down. I have read somewhere on the forum that spraying the switches with a contact cleaning spray cures this fault. Can anyone recommend a spray to use and also how these switches are removed from the door.

    You may also want to check that you have a good connection at the plug mate
    To remove the switch I think you have to remove the door cards...somebody will confirm this..

    Hi

    I had exactly the same problem.

    If you use a small flat bladed screwdriver at the bottom of the switch you can prise it out of the door card.

    Once it's out you have to disconnect the wires. On the drivers side there is a small lever which you pull up and it disconnects the wires. On the passenger side it was just a simple push / pull fit.

    There are then just a couple of screws holding the switch assembly together. Undo them and then the switch can be levered apart.

    I just squirted a little bit of WD40 on mine and then reassembled.

    They've worked perfectly ever since.

    My pass side did the same.
