Default How to remove front power windows switch...?

I need to replace my 5-gang power switch in my '01 PT. Could anyone let me know how to take out this part? Does the whole console come off or can the switch be removed alone? Anything will help...!

Please and thankyou.

OK, slowly, carefully, pry out the whole plate that goes around the window switch. It just comes straight out. Use a plastic or wood prying tool so you don't scratch anything. It comes out and brings the windows switches with it.

Once it's out you can take off the electrical connections to the switches from the back. Since that's what your tryng to replace, no need to go any further, but if you wanted the whole thing out, look inside the space where the window switches were and you'll see one screw. Unscrew that screw and that's the only thing holding the entire outside case around the whole console. Pry that casing out from both sides using the same plastic or wooden prying tool. Once that's out yo have access to the radio and other stuff.

Oh yea, take off the 4 vent knobs from the air-conditions/heater control before taking the outside case off.
