I tried it once and I wouldn't recommend it. There are tiny springs (and I mean tiny) and small contacts ( about the size of a pin head) that will fly out when you take it apart. What makes you think that it's bad. Most problems are due to the worm gear and not the limit switch.

I'm getting power from the up/down switch to the upper back panel limit switch but no power across the contact

Across which contact? Is the flip lid up or down. Exactly what part of the top sequence isn't working.
