    1963 Thunderbird rear seat power window switch

    Is it possible to repair a 1963 Thunderbird rear seat power window switch. If so, how does one remove the 'lever' from the switch to access the contacts between the lever and bakelite switch. Thank you for your help. Harry

    Most electric switches are not built to be serviced but are meant to be replaced with a new C3SZ-14529-A. Having said that, I have 'rebuilt' many power window switches because the cost of a new one hovers around US$75. I consider these switches to be 'broken' anyway, so there is nothing to lose and everything to gain.

      Once you remove the screw on the center post the lever will come right out and you will be able to clean the contacts.
