Hi, I’m Mike from 1A Auto. We’ve been selling auto parts for over 30 years!

In this video, we are going to show you how to replace a passenger side window switch in a 2010 Volkswagen GTI. If you need this part or any other part, you can click the link in the description. You take your pry tools and get these trim tools at Push down slightly right here. Be careful not to break anything. A lock tab's right there. There should be another one on this side. One more over here. There we go.

We have four lock tabs. Two on that side. Two on this side. All right. Pull up slightly, and you need to disconnect the connector. You're going to push on this little lock tab on the connector, and then pull down. Now, to pull the window switch out, you're going to take a flat blade tool and just put it in there between the switch and the housing. One last one. Get the last lock out.

Here's our old part. Here's our new part from As you can see, they look very similar and your connectors are exactly the same. Get your part at, and you'll be ready to rock and roll.

Install our switch into our trim piece. You're going to slide it in like so, just give it a little pressure. Make sure all the lock tabs are in. Looks good. Now, we're going to connect our electrical connector. You're going to line up these slots with the new switch. Push it on, and we need to line this up down below. Push down on the locks. It's locked in place.
