Power window switches

Has anyone else had problems with the power window switches being really sticky/difficult to actuate? Mine are really tough to push in. Is there a way to alleviate that w/o buying a whole new switch??

Mine decide to work occasionally on the pass. window and i dissasembled one and rebuilt it. It wasnt that hard. The metal spring may have slipped or is hanging up. Its the only other solution to new switches. I just cleaned all the contacts. It works but now im thinking my problem may be elsewhere.

I relocated mine to the center console (early 944). Removed the ash tray, made hardwood insert, bought two DPDT momentary contact switches from Hardin MArine (Carlingswitch) for $8 apiece. Disabled door switches, wired in the new switches and no more problems with $.79 factory switches.

The ball berrings and springs inside the switch have fallen into the switch. I have had it happen twice. Once on a window switch and once on the headlight switch. The are a bit of a pain to get back togeather but the mechenisum is simple.

I did with mine when I first got it. It was just a bad connection with the wire, wasn't a hard fix at all.
