How to Replace a 1996 Toyota Camry Power Window Switch
The 1996 Toyota Camry power window switch appears difficult to replace because there are no visible fasteners to remove. This is, however, not the case. It is necessary to take precautions not to damage the door panel when removing the switch, but the job takes less than five minutes to complete.
- Wrench set
- Flat-head screwdriver
- Masking tape
Raise the hood and use a wrench to disconnect the negative battery cable. Tape the end of a flat-blade screwdriver and gently insert it under the front lip of the window switch. Lightly press forward and lever up at the same time. The switch will pop up. It is held in place by spring clips that locks the switch in place, and pressing in releases the spring tension.
Press and release the lock clips that hold the switch wiring connector in place. Pull up on the connector. It will take some force to remove the connector. Use the screwdriver to lever the connector off of the switch if necessary.
Press the connector onto the new switch pins. Press firmly to seat the connector and make sure the connector locks over the retainer clips. Align the new switch into the mounting hole and press down until the switch snaps into place. Reconnect the battery cable and lower the hood.
