Window switch rebuild?

Is is possible to rebuild the window switch on my 01' X5,3.0? I pulled it the other day while trying to get the driver window down and while messing with the wires and connectors to the switch the window went down part way. BTW, where is the relay for this switch? The driver window goes down with the key fob though about 90 percent of the time. Thanks.

Window switch rebuild?

Before you go into rebuild mode you might to clarify what is exactly not working. The switch window lifter located on the driver side door handles multiple equipment: power door locks, windows (4), side mirrors (2), dome lights with doors opened, chime with key in ignition and door opened.

If everything else works except for the driver window, your issue could be a component of the window regulator slowly failing. It could also possibly be one the wire connector that was not properly re-attached to the window switch lifter (there should be 3 of them).
You can find the fuse diagram inside the glovebox, lookup and unlatch the tab that should drop down. You also have access to the fuses there.

Good point. Everything else works fine, except the driver mirror hasn't worked for over a year. I'll check, thanks. Good thinking.
