Power window switch for 850

Can someone recommend me how to replace/repair passenger power window switch
on my 850GLT. I really have to press it hard to be able to close the window.
I am afraid next time it will not close the window at all. All other windows
and mirror switches work perfect. Is there a way to replace it or fix it.
Can I do it myself.

Thanks for any suggestions.

frank

Belive it or not, you can clean it without removing anything. Remove
the fuse for power windows, or even better, disconnect the battery.

Rock the offending switch in one direction and pry the plastic "rocking"
part off with a screwdriver. I use an Swiss Army knife for this as the
corners are rounded and it doesn't mark the plastic. Then inside you'll
see 2 ball bearings (they may stay in the posts on the rocker removed in
step 1) and 2 contact strips. Remove these 4 bits and clean the
contacts. Clean the contacts now visible on the bottom of the switch.
Replace the contact strips and set the ball bearing down in the center
of them. Note there are springs inside the posts on the rocker, snap
the rocker in place making sure the posts land on top of the ball
bearings.

Replace tt with t (twice!) and remove parentheses to email me directly.
