Hi, I'm Mike Green. I'm one of the owners of 1A Auto. I want to help you save time and money repairing or maintaining your vehicle. I'm going to use my 20-plus years experience restoring and repairing cars and trucks like this to show you the correct way to install parts from 1AAuto.com. The right parts installed correctly: that's going to save you time and money. Thank you and enjoy the video.

In this video, we're going to show you how to replace the master power window switch on this 2004 Dodge Stratus, same as any '01 to '06 Stratus. If your windows stop working on the door . so say your right rear window's not working at the door anymore, but it still works with the master window switch ., that is an indication that either your door switch is going bad, or your master switch is going bad. Tools you'll need are a small flat blade screwdriver, Phillips screwdriver, a putty knife or a door panel clip tool, and a T20 Torx driver.

Use a small flat blade screwdriver, and down in the pull cup here, pry up a little trap door. There's a Phillips screw in there, and then in behind your door handle there's another Phillips screw in there, and then there's three Phillips screws: one there, there, there, and then one on the back edge here. Just going to fast forward as I use a Phillips screwdriver and remove six screws in all. See this triangle up here? Just pull out. All you need is a putty knife. Get down in behind the door panel here, slide it down, and pull it out. Start to pull the pins. Then the door panel comes up.

Right here is your lock harness, the little button; press on that and disconnect. On your latch rod there's a clip. I'm just reaching in behind with my finger. Pull that clip off, and the rod comes up and off. Then, lastly down here is your window harness. There's a button right in the middle. You've really got to push that button and then work the harness out, and your door panel's off.

Once your door panel's off, you want to check these aqua clip pins here, because there could be pins stuck inside them. Use a pair of needle nose pliers, pull the pins out, and then re-install them on the inside of your door panel.

With your panel off, turn over here and your window switch is right here. It's held in by three T20 Torx screws. I'm using a T20 Torx driver to remove them. There's one right here. Then there's one back in here that's hard to film. Push my driver against the door panel. With those screws out, the switch comes right out.

The new switch from 1A Auto is going to drop right in there. See if I can line it up and put those in. Just speed up here. Carefully get those screws started by hand, and then, again, use your T20 Torx driver to put them in and tighten them up. You don't have to get them extremely tight, just nice and firm to hold it in place.

Get your door panel back on. First reconnect your power window switch, make sure it clicks. Bring it close. Reconnect your power door locks. Take this rod, put it into the hole, and slip the clip right around. Clip it on. Make sure your lock goes through. There is a large locating tab that goes into a big hole. Once you've got that, make sure your pins go in. With the sheet back, make sure all the pins go in correctly. Now, it's just a matter of replacing all the Phillips screws. We'll speed up as we replace all those screws. There was one down in the door cup behind the door panel, three at the bottom, and then one at the back.
