N/s/r window

Ok, just bought what I thought was a D40 with everything working however have two faults:-

1. N.s.r. Window will go both up and down from its specific door switch but from the drivers switch will only go down.

Any ideas????????

2. Sat nav joystick control knob is missing. Thought that I would be ok and I would just get one from Nissan but if you have ever enquirer then you will be laughing at me now as they are not available separately, 412.00 I was quoted......eek.

Any ideas. Any other knobs that fit either well or bearable.

Thanks very much

Re: N/s/r window

1. I would bet the most likely fault is with the driver's door switch. Try a breakers / ebay.
2. You don't say what age / navigation system is, but if it's the most common one of the 2006 - 2010 era you can get the small switch panel from ebay or breakers. Just unscrews.

Re: N/s/r window

The cluster can easily be removed for the door and probably only needs to be stripped and cleaned, it's not a big job, it just clips apart.

I'll put up a few photos and if people want I'll do a how to guide!!!

Basically just remove the cluster from the door, just pops out, no screws. unplug the socket, remove the white cover from the rear, it clips off, pull out the circuit board, remove the rocker switch, it clips off, expose the internal contact points, remove and clean each contact point. Do one switch at a time so if you're not sure which way things go you can remove another and have a look.
Reassemble in reverse order taking care when dropping the circuit board back down into position that the light diodes that illuminate the switched are straight so they go back into the correct slot.

The photo shows the complete switch stripped down but you don't need to remove the screws to get it apart.

Re: N/s/r window

Thank you so so much for the pictures, I will attack this when I get an early day.

It's a 2008 so will try breakers for switch but am dubious as to whether they will sell me just the switch from a working sat nav and perhaps will only sell it complete.

Another problem now..... Steering wheel centre bit where the switches are is a bit worn, is it possible to get a new overlay from anywhere, it just takes the shine off what is a good looking cabin.
