Window switch operation is intermittent

Post by fpena944 »

The driver's side window switch on my 2011 Cayenne is acting up randomly.

Is there a fix for this or should I just remove and replace the entire unit?

This is what it looks like:

Good question. I’m guessing entire unit, however I’m sure someone with fiddle time has figured out a work around.

First, trying spraying some contact cleaner in the switch.

If that does not work, order the replacement but do not open the box.

Remove old switch and take it apart to clean. Put it back together and see if it works.

If it does, return new switch. If it doesn’t then replace it.

Less than $200 on Partsgeek plus looks pretty easy to pop out and replace. Will do what @NCporsche suggested, thanks!
