Refurbishing the Window Switch

Whether it is a window or sunroof switch, after a number of years the contacts within the switch corrode. Once that happens, you will no longer be able to open or close the windows or electrically operate the sunroof. New replacement parts are typically around $40. Junkyard switches can be gotten for $10 or less.

But it isn’t that difficult to take the switch apart and clean the contact surfaces. Once apart, you will understand the ingenious design of the rocker switch.
