I'm in the process of changing out my door panels. Just driver door left and I want transfer the switches and handle as well.
panel is off but need help taking apart the wiring connection to the windows.
Probably overlooking the obvious here....

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.
