See Figure 5
Replacing the starter while the engine is cold is recommended. A hot engine can result in personal injury.

I can lmost guarantee you that it is the switch. If you have a master switch they both may be corroded at the same time.
Before you replace the motor in the window take out the switch rather its in the door panal or arm rest. You can then get a piece of bailing wire or a coat hanger might work and cut a small piece off with wire cutters. About an inch or two long. Bend the wire because after you unplug the wires from the switch you are going to test the window motor. Turn the key to the on position and stick the bent wire into various combinations until you get it to roll up or down. If this works then the motor is good. I can't see how your switch wires look so if the bent coat hanger can't get into them then you need to scrape a bare spot in the different wires so you can cross them with each other. Black electrical tape will cover the bare spots easily. Once you see that it is indeed the switch then you can now take the switch apart. Inside is some contact points that get corroded and won't allow the power to flow through it to give the cpommands you want. Take some steel wool or your wifes emery board and file or clean them nice and shiny. You may see the plastic switch box is sealed. Just pop off the top with a pocket knife. Becareful to see exactly how the parts inside go to gether. I have fixed 4 or 5 this way with a 100% win win situation. But don't worry to much if you can't get them back together. They are a dime a dozen at the wrecking yards for 5 bucks or so. Pick-a-parts where you go in and take your parts off yourself are the cheapest way to go if you need to get one. You can do this with any of the switches but it may be for the low cost that you just want to get the used ones and replace the whole switch by just reconnecting the wires. I am askin flint and choose the hard way to save a penny. LOL So let me know how you fair on this. If you still need to remove the panel and change the motor then let me know and I will explain how. Best of luck, Raz
