small flat blade screwdriver under the lip on what you'd see as top and bottom.

there is a how-to that goes clear down to taking the innards apart so you can switch out the lights to leds on here somewhere, i don't have it saved tho or i'd link ya to it

to get down to just the switch? it snaps up into that holder, and it's an issue of PATIENCE and paying attention is all, i have a new one sitting in front of me right now, 10 bux shipped off ebay, it will be replacing my clear passenger side.

blue leds, clear switch--------BRIGHT. i drive on country highways at night, and it was way too distracting, so think about that before you do it

here is a idea to throw out there. Change your switches to the Alero switches. then throw in any LED colour blubs. It looks good i think.

HINT: Only the drivers window switch on the alero (black one with white small square where light shines thru) will work. the others are too wide by a mm or 2

okay thanks

it looks like the "window lock" button is completely different than my GA. i do like those, and i suppose a little bit of dremel work and they fit. actually i think Trugreen has done this, i'm almost sure of it

you've got it out of the door right?

unplug the harness, and with it "plug side up" look at the edges of the switch inside the trim piece that you just removed from the door, there are little clips, 2 on one side, 1 on the other.

flat blade them, one at a time, and be ready for it to pop back in place 20 times on ya. that's all you do to it, they're not glued or anything
