Default How To: Fix NNBS Window Switch

If your NNBS is like mine and has a finniky window switch (particularly the passenger windows on the driver's panel), then this write up is for you. This will work only if your windows are functioning properly and you have narrowed it down to being only a switch issue.

This is a super easy fix and takes only about 20 minutes working slow.

Basically you have to remove the whole driver's side window switch panel.

Use a small screwdriver to pry up the handle cover.

Remove the switch assembly by prying out the tabs and pulling up.

Separate the switch assembly by prying out on the small tabs.

Then remove the rubber piece.

Take some fine sandpaper or steel wool (I used an emory board) to lightly file down the contacts on the rubber piece. Use steel wool on the circuit board. Be careful here and don't get too far off the small contact piece or you might damage the board.

As you can see in this picture the contacts are corroded which causes the intermittent functionality.

Put the assembly back together and you will be as good as new.

I also thought about using a small amount of dielectric grease but didn't have any on hand.

Hope this helps some of you.

Awesome!

I'm having trouble with the passenger rear window rolling down but won't come back up from the drivers side panel. I'll give this a try today.
