1. Remove ash tray, then remove 2 screws holding ashtray body in. 2. Push switch panel to rear and lift on the front to remove switch panel. 3. Unplug switches to completeley remove switch panel. 4. With a screw driver depress the metal clip at each end of switch to remove the individual switch from the panel. 5. You then replace or repair the switch. The switch can be disasembled and repaired. Be careful not to lose the 2 ball bearings inside the switch. Remove the 2 brass rocker plates and burnish the contacts. Then reassemble. Much better than spending 75.00 for new switch assembly. 6. reassemble in reverse order. You do not need to remove the ashtray as the window switches are located on the wood insert around the shifter. Remove the plastic trim ring from around the shifter. Then carefully lift the wood trim surround that holds the switches. Becareful not to snap the plastic clips that hold the switches in place

Lift up the rug /mat in the console. remove the screw holding it down. They pop out easily once the panel is lifted up.

Right windows (front and rear) are fuse H, and left windows fuse G. 1. The power(for all the windows) flows through the K4 power window relay. That relay is powered by fuse #2. 2. Than the power flows through fuses G + H, and to the switches in the forward rear window switches in the center console by the shifter. 3. Power goes through the front switches, to the rear switches, and than to the window motors. 4. Ground is supplied to the motors through the switches as well. Ground to the rear switches is controlled by the "rear window safety switch" located between the front and rear window switches on the center console. - - ----I just sat here for five minutes trying to put into words a description of the the operation of the switches and power flow to the window motors. I cant say I can do it w/out really confusing everyone. If anyone really needs an operational description just message me. Hope this helps.

Depends exactly what part you are wanting to clean. You should be able to pop out the section holding the switches with a flathead screwdriver. That is what I did-then replaced my switches. Now if you are wanting to go deeper into the console-I am not really sure, but my guess is to remove the console starting up under the dash then working your way to the rear of car. Should unscrew with a Phillips or Alan set. Hope this helps

You must remove the center console and on the bottom side there are screws that hold window switch panel in place. Usualy about a 15-20 minute job to remove console, just make sure you plug in all other switches if any on reassembly. Hope this helps.

I have a 1972 Corvette and the power window relay is in the shifter console, just forward of the power window switches. I would believe it's in the same place in the '73. Good Luck

The only factory switches ever installed on a Chevy Beretta center console are power window switches, and trunk popper switch on the shift plate. There is also the cigarette lighter/power source. Anything else is aftermarket and added by the previous owner.

The rear window has probably been replaced at some point with one that has defrost. The rear window has probably been replaced at some point with one that has defrost.

The electric window switches in 1999-2005 Mazda Miatas can be pried out with a flathead screwdriver after the center console is removed. The center console can be removed by removing: 1. 1 screw on each side side of the shifter, covered by plastic screw covers 2. Screws in the center console 3. On 99-00s, remove the ash tray for the last screw Remove the center console, you'll here a small "snap" towards the front that is connected to the dash. Flip it over and you'll see how the window switch is attached with electrical harness. By now, the electrical windows switches have become very brittle with age. It is not uncommon for the plastic tabs to break, that held the switch in place. This can be fixed by wrapping 2-3 layers of electrical tape just under the lip of the switch, which will create a nice, friction fit for it to be replaced.

I am having the same problem my drivers side window will not go up but it will go down. Ford pulled a fast one and made it so all of the switches on the drivers need to be replaced together. There is a black box containing all of the window switches as well as the window lock. This whole piece needs to be replaced. To get this part the top piece of the armrest needs to be pried off with a scewdriver in the gap between the lower armrest panel. Once that is off disconnect the harnesses below. The black box need sto be replaced.

You have bad window switches. Remove and carefully disaasemble and clean the contacts of the switches. also you need to make sure fuse is in good shape. if its not the fuse,or switch, it might be the regulator is broken, is usually the case.

i have a 2001 Nissan altima and the power window switch had a problem... only the drivers window had a problem. I took it to the dealor b/c there is a recall on the power window switches and they replaced all 4 for free. Not sure if the 2000 year has the same recall, but it's worth checking out.
