To access your power window switch, you'll need to remove this vent cover. Simply push the vent all the way down, grab here, and pull it out. Now if you lay this over carefully, you can lift the tab, the dimmer switch connector, pop that connector off. The same thing for the power mirror switch. Simply lift here, pull back. To remove the power mirror switch, simply place your thumb on the back and pop the switch out of the cover.

Pop your switch back into place. Reconnect the connectors. Carefully set the vent back into the dash, poke the top edge in, and snap it back into place.
