1997-2003 master window switch repair
this is what ALOT of GM window switched looked like in the mid 90'* to early 2000'*
So lets get right to the point. Who likes a write up if it does not have pictures? Not me!
Does any of your windows go down but not up?
Does any of your windows go up but not down?
My problem was that my drivers side window would roll down But not up! So I was not about to fork out 80$ for a new switch. Call me crazy But I wasn’t going to pay 40$ for a used switch that might do the same problem. Call me a Penny pincher if you must. So lets get started.
Take the switch out of the car. And place it on the table!
Next pop the plastic pieces off the switch that you press to roll the window down. Then turn the switch over and wedge a small flat head screw driver in-between the black plastic casing and the white switch, and get the black plastic off of the Switch “guts” Next you will see this.
There are now 4 clear plastic peaces where the switch snaps on to
The clear peaces are held on by 2 pivot points And snap out
Next you will see to metal pieces under where the plastic was, Mine where charged black. This is after cleaning the, (I used hot water and q-tips) Pop the metal pices out and clean them, There are also to contact point under each switch, Clean them two
Put dielectric grease on them. And put the metal piece where they were, snap the clear plastic piece back on
Re-assemble and enjoy your new working window switch!
