Appears to be a straight lever operated toggle switch
they are available on e-bay, Jaycar or any electrical or electronic shop
some auto parts shops also sell them
all you have to know is if it is an -on/off switch or---up on --middle off --down on-- for another circuit ( 3 position switch)

The power window switch on front passenger door "sunk" into the door panel

Either the switch has broken off its lugs to hold it into place or the panel that it sits in has broken. You will probably have to strip some of the door or the panel the switch sits in to get the switch back. Once you have determined what has broken off, go to a wrecker or a Dealer and buy a new part. There will be wiring on the back of that switch. If the connections are single wires, make close note of what wire goes where. If its a plastic multiplug connection, they will usually only fit one way.

Brake light switch not working

If you press the brake pedal and the rear lights don't work, It can be a number of things. Blown bulbs, Blown fuse or a broken circuit. The broken circuit could be a cable or connection failed, a broken switch or a bad earth. The fact that both lights don't work would indicate the problem is most likely to be a fuse or a switch. Just because you can hear the switch click, doesn't mean it is working. Replacement of a brake switch should only take a novice mechanic about 30 minutes.

Key broken in suzuki swift 1998 ignition switch

If a fine pick won't work you could try super-glue carefully applied between the broken halves, or if the key is ferrous (steel) try a neodymium magnet (which you can find in an old hard-drive).

97 expedition new window motor and switch still don't work

You have to use a voltmeter and make sure the motor is getting power. If no power at the motor, check for power at the switch, first make sure power is coming into switch, and then operate the switch and make sure power is going out to the motor.

Make sure you have a good ground on the door.

Could have a broken wire between switch and door, or between fuse block and switch. A wire can be broken on the inside without the insulation being broken
