Last time I went to take the Vette out the passenger window wouldn't roll down. Surprisingly enough, turned out to be easy to find a replacement window switch unlike most parts. It also turned out to be not that big a deal to replace it.
You have to strip the covers off the instrument cluster, the center of the dash, the console cover and the area around the shifter. The fun part is getting the switch out of the mount and the connector through the hole to disconnect it.
About 2 hours to strip everything off, replace the switch and put it all back together but it's done.
I have a closet of parts I've collected over the time since I bought the car, but guess what part I didn't have? I bought 2 right away to have a 2d one on the shelf just in case.

Chalk one more winter job being done.

Good job. Are you sure the switch itself was bad? The only reason I ask is because lady year my seat switch stopped working. I took it apart and lightly sanded the contacts...worked again like new. Regardless, glad you worked it out!

I ohmd the old vs one of the new switches I got after I finished the replacement. Got some differences in readings so pretty sure the old one was bad. I used to take them apart like you did and file the contacts but for what the new one cost it wasn't worth the effort and the passenger one is used so little compared to the drivers side, but I did keep the old one in my 'bad parts' bucket just in case.
Before I buttoned it back up, I did test it and it worked so seemed like a no-brainer to me. If this one lasts another 30 years like the old one did, it won't be me worrying about it.
