My drivers side window goes down but will not go back up, except when you lower and then raise the top.

The car came with a complete extra set of switches when I bought it, so I guess the previous owner had intended to change them.

Is there a tutorial available that shows how to remove the old switches from the console and install the new one? It looks like it should be simple, but any advice on how to remove the old switch board is appreciated. Thanks for this great forum!

Shifer Console Window Switches

This article addresses replacing the light bulbs in the console but will get you most of the way there. Removal of the switch circuit board is very straightforward once the module is removed.

Welcome from central ohio.

Follow snomunchers advice.
But whatever you do DO NOT throw away your old parts. They might be repairable.

Does the brushed aluminum cover just pull straight up?

Yes. Protect the paint on the console with tape or a cloth and use a plastic or nylon pry tool on the edges to lift it straight up. The metal clips fit tightly and it might take some amount of force to remove but it will pop free. Some folks use their fingers under the edge to get more grip but that runs the risk of getting them pinched. Be patient as you do this.

Helpful hint......

Before re-installing the cover, put a tiny bit of lubrication on the metal clips that hold it in place. It will make life easier the second time you have to get in there. I use a little white assembly lube on my fingertips and just wipe the four clips with my thumb and forefinger.

This goes for everything I pull apart that had those damn spring clips.

My two cents,

Mike
