You should be able to fit a butter knife below the switch and wedge it up wards, then just disconnect the harness connector with a small screw driver.
Good luck, and let me know if I can further assist you.

Power window switch wiring schematic

Sorry, don't have one, but lookatit this way: The driver's door master switch has a hot wire to it, probably from a circuit breaker in the fuse panel, and a ground wire from master switch back into cabin to a nearby ground. Then the master switch has 2 wires to each window motor. Depending on the switch's up or down position, each wire will serve as a power signal to the motor or a ground signal back to the master switch. See? The other door switches each have a power feed wire to switch, so that switch can operate its window motor. They all work the same: Switch up or down will change the current flow to motor. The ground current flow always goes back into the master switch and then to that nearby ground.
Have I muddied it up enough for you? Well, sorry, Jim, guess you have to look at a diagram, then.

Change the master switch,the drivers,this is a master and the windows can have problems even with the other switches on the other doors cause they have to go threw the master switch.

Replace the master switch,it is the problem.If you have already,then there is a wiring problem,unless the motor is bad in the door,if it is working at that door switch,then there is a wire problem,if the master has been changed out.

Rear windows dont workfrom master switch after battery disconnect

You have to reset the windows and sunroof after you change the battery. For windows open the driver half way and close the window up and hold the up switch for few seconds. If that don't work open the rear window from rear switch and that should work.
For moon roof open the moon roof and keep the hold the open button pressed for 10 seconds. Then close the moon roof and hold the close button pressed for 10 seconds
