One of the most performed manual operations you do is hitting the switch at your driver or passenger door to open or close either of your car's windows. It is in fact a simple task, and all you need is a smooth window operation in order to keep your day going well. Once your window stops midway during a rainy day, you also get pissed off aside from needing to wipe the interiors dry afterwards. Prevent that by installing a high-quality window switch. Let us see if a replacement window switch will be the best one for your taste and pocket.
- Made of plastic
- With smooth and clean finish
- Original equipment replacement
- With four buttons
- With 10-prong male terminal
- With a year of unlimited-mileage warranty
We installed this component on a Cadillac Seville and a Honda Accord LX, and here is how things turned out:
- The window switch was easy to install in minutes. Being a direct-fit, original equipment replacement part, the product's design allowed us to connect it to the supply circuit without any hassle. Because the component has all buttons in one panel, we only had to disassemble the front, driver side door in order to have it installed. That was actually better than taking out each door of the Seville and the Accord LX just to accommodate each switch. In short, less work, less time.
- The plastic material used looked strong, and the chrome finish was a good accent to the front, driver side door.
- The switches toggled smoothly from open to close and vice versa. We literally played with them in order to alternately test the windows if they were going up and down without stopping midway.
- The price is actually very competitive. We consider it a good kind, considering its appearance, construction, and materials that are at par with branded window switches.
- The one year of unlimited-mileage warranty provided was actually too short compared with what other manufacturers give. Dorman backs its window switches with a lifetime limited warranty, while AutoTrust gives a good five years of limited warranty.
There are actually a lot of kinds of window switches, but this kind got our attention because of its four-button design, which we thought would make it easier to install. In addition, the design of the component would make it less hassle for you to check its power and health after years of use. With a middle-line price and quality design, a replacement window switch will surely be a good product to opt for.
