Unhappy Power Window Switch

2001 Base. The wife's car.
Switch for the driver door window seems to be stuck. No operation or movement. Windows were down on a very windy day here in the Mojave Desert.
I think it is the switch and not the motor by the fact the switch does not move either direction.
It looks like a major pain to R and R...........................................Any ideas out there?

How do I get the assembly out of the dash?
Do I pull the covers and toggles first?

Here is the link to an excerpt from the OEM service manual, complete instructions on removing, troubleshooting, and replacing the switches.

Quick shot of the switch removal:


Note that the pdf file includes the wiring and pinouts.

call your local junkyard, you can probably get a whole switch assembly for $5.

Easier to just pop the one on the dash out, and swap it than to disassemble the entire unit :-)

Like everyone said....
the switch removal is easy, a 10 second job. There are usually some on eBay or go to a junk yard and be in and out in 5/10 minutes. Replace the switch in the junk yard parking lot and go home.
