Hi, I'm Mike from 1AAuto. We've been selling auto parts for over 30 years! We're dedicated to delivering quality auto parts, expert customer service, and fast and free shipping, all backed by our 100% satisfaction guarantee. So visit us at 1AAuto.com, your trusted source for quality auto parts.

In this video, we're going to be working with our 2006 Chrysler 300. We're going to show you how to remove and replace your vehicle's rear window switches on either the driver or passenger side. We're doing the passenger side.

Now you can pry these out from the top of the trim panel. However, the clips on them are pretty tough, and you do risk damaging your door panel when you do that. We're going to show you the safe way by removing the panel first.

Here are the items you'll need for this repair: Phillips head screwdriver

The four plastic pushpins on your door, there are three on the outside edge here and one on the inside edge. All you have to do to remove these is pop the centers in. You can use a screwdriver to do that. You don't have to knock them all the way through like that. You can just pop them in.

Use one of your 1AAuto trim tools. Get behind it, and pry the clips out. There are four Phillips head screws along the bottom of the door panel. One up in the corner here in that fore. There's a little tab under the door handle that you have to pry down with the trim tool. There's another Phillips head screw in there. Our piece of trim is missing, but you'll normally have to pop down a little trim flap here to access that Phillips head screw. Once you've got everything exposed, you can go ahead and remove all those with a Phillips head screwdriver. Once you've got all your screws off, you may not even need your trim tool. Pull the panel out, and release all the clips. Then slide it up and off the door lock. Pop the tab over for the latch rod on your door handle. Rotate it out of the way, and slide the latch rod out of the pull. You can then reach the connector for the rear window switch and unplug it. Remove your door panel from the vehicle.

To remove your window switch, you can pry it while the panel's on the door; however, you're likely to damage the panel and/or the switch in this process. I like to take the panel off since it's pretty quick and easy. Then just push down the tabs from the bottom side. Pop the switch out. Installing a new switch is as easy as lining it up and snapping it into place.

Reconnect your window switch, and your latch. Remember the rod goes in, clasp snaps over it. Make sure that the lock slides back through the panel in the appropriate place. Line up your panel. Snap the plastic clips back in. Reinstall your four plastic push clips. Reinstall the four Phillips head screws along the bottom edge of your door panel. The one hidden under the handle, and the one hidden behind your door handle, and you're good to go.
