Re: Driver window stuck in closed position, other window fine

Here is a video on how to replace the switch, and how to remove the plastic triangle. It seems to be the same method for all 4 doors:

No need. It's trivial. You need to lift the black triangle that holds the switches on the driver's door. To do this, put your hand in the door handle and turn your fingers forward. You will feel that there is a slight indentation to allow you to lift the back of the black triangle. Lift firmly until you hear the first pop. Then slide your fingers in and lift firmly further back. Once you hear the second pop, you can slide the entire assembly toward the rear about one inch to free the front and allow it to lift free. From there, you can see what needs to be done to replace the module, especially once you have the replacement unit in hand.

Thanks, Tim! Good information!

Still, the switch needs to be replaced based on OP's description of the problem. I recommend doing that first and seeing how well the window moves. If it is sluggish, then you might want to look into the other issue. Unfortunately, that one is quite a bit more involved.



I have a problem:
The YouTube Link looks good. Also, I priced a replacement -- $165 plus tax, but that is for the entire switch assembly. Wondering if only the bad switch can be individually replaced.

@CWO4Mann

You have to buy the whole assembly.
One of the reasons why it stops working you may see here:





There you will also see why you can`t just replace one switch...

I think you can consult with a best mechanic and also you find any repair shop for fix a window.

I’m late to this window switch failure party but it finally did happen on my 2011 LEAF. Thanks for the part numbers and videos, they’ll both save us a lot of aggravation and expense. :)

mine died a couple weeks ago; lucky drivers window is in closed position

getting a new replacement part at the Nissan dealers is over £145 + VAT :o

so going to try to replace it with a £20 scrap Juke switch block see if that's working :roll:

I wondered the same -did it work out? :?:

On ebay they are selling aftermarket master switches that fit Leaf and Juke so thought may be ok to get used for juke as way cheaper ....
