Well, if your door panel is already off - then obviously you've already disconnected the electrical connectors to the switches? Otherwise the panel would just be hanging on the car by the wires?

In any event, window switches have a lever on the connector that needs to be swiveled - it then 'cams' the connector out of the switch.

As for the switch itself, it simply prys out of the armrest. Get a plastic pry tool, pry switch assembly up at the front, then pull front up & forward to release the rear spring clip. There is a metal clip at back side so don't pry from rear of switch.

1st set of tools I bought for my BMW was the Schwaben Nylon Trim Tool Set. Way better than using a screwdriver to remove trim, door panels, etc. as they won't damage anything...

Yep. Thanks. The swivel deal was causing the problem.
