Hi, I'm Mike from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of Thanks.

In this video, we're going to show you how to replace the passenger side power window switch. It's the same part and similar process for the rear door window switches. It's the same part on these Jetta's from 2005 to 2010. The items that you'll need for this is a new power window switch from, a T30 Torx bit and ratchet, a flat blade screwdriver, and a T20 Torx driver.

Pry out on your pull handle panel here. Then remove these two T30 screws. We'll fast forward as Mike does that. Now remove this T20 screw and these 3 T20 screws down at the bottom of the door panel. Now pull out on the door panel to release the clips. You just need to pull out all the way along the outside edge. Once you've released all the clips, pull the door panel up and out of the window sill. Then pull it forward. Pull back on this cable to release the clip, and then unhook it from the door handle. Then push the two tabs on your speaker harness and disconnect it. Then, down here, you want to push on this tab while lifting up that purple lever. That will release that harness. Now remove these two T20 screws on the back of your pull handle. Now remove this T20 screw right here. Your pull handle will pull free. You may have to work at it a little bit. Once it releases, just push the tab on this harness and disconnect it.

Now apply pressure to the switch, and then just release the tabs on either side. There are two on each side. The switch will pull free.

On the right is the old power window switch; on the left is the new one from 1A Auto. You can see they're identical and will fit exactly the same.

You can see we've put our pull handle back on and replaced those three T20 screws. Now just reconnect the harness to the power window switch and push it into place. Test it out and it works.

We'll reconnect the harness. Push that purple lever back up. Then reconnect the speaker harness. Then rehook the door handle cable into the door handle and then clip it back in. Then put your door panel back up into the window sill and push it down in. Now make sure your clips are lined up, and put them back into place. Then we'll fast-forward as Mike replaces those four T20 screws and the two T30 screws. Put the pull handle panel back into place. Make sure it's pushed in all the way and you're all set.
