In this video, we'll replace the master power window switch in this 1998 Nissan Altima. This procedure is the same for all 1998-2001 Nissan Altimas. Tools required are only a regular screwdriver and a Phillips screwdriver. So, we're working here with the drivers front door, and what you do is kind of pull up on that bezel a little bit and stick the screwdriver in. You'll contact a clip and once you pop that clip a little bit, it just comes right out. The harness hooks into this switch. There's a little button right there, and it's a little difficult to push that button in, but you should be able to push it in with your finger. Once you get it, it comes out really easy. It's kind of one of those things you work at it for a little bit. Figure out the best way to press it and pull out on the harnesses at the same time.

As you see, once it comes out, it comes out easy. It's held on by four screws, four Phillips Screws. We'll speed up the video a little bit here. Once you have those screws out, then you can replace this switch. This switch actually works fine. We're just doing it for an example. We'll put it back in again. Speed up the video. Four Phillips screws. Use your screwdriver, tighten them up a little bit. Reinstall the switch the same way you pull it out. First plug in the harness, then we'll do a quick test here to make sure everything works right. You want to test all your windows, your locks, make sure the window lockout button works everything. Once you're satisfied it's working good, then it just slips down and in place. You're all set. A fairly simple replacement.
