How to change the window switch on Nissan Maxima 2004-2008

DIY, change the driver’s master window switch on your Nissan Maxima, the model produced between the years 2004 and 2008. Sometimes these switches get wet and shorted out and they need to be replaced. You can do it using a flat blade screwdriver and a Phillips screwdriver. The procedure won’t take you more than 20 minutes, in the worst case.

    In the beginning, open the door on the driver’s side and start by prying out the window switch on the left side, to the exterior. You can use the tip of a flat blade screwdriver inserted as you can see in the picture below.

     After you lift up the switch, look beneath it and unplug the two harnesses seen in the next image, that power up its buttons. You can do it simply, by hand.

     After you remove the connectors, you will be able to install the replacement. If you need to separate the switch module from the plastic bezel, you can do it using a Phillips screwdriver on three screws that secure it (see image below).

     Make the replacements and install the switch back into the door panel. Plug back the connectors and insert the right side of the switch first (the one to the interior of the car) and then press on the left side to make sure everything is installed properly. This is all you need to do, if you wish to remove and replace the master window switch on your Nissan Maxima, the model made between the years 2004 and 2008.
