Went old school on the 2012 200 drop top master switch today, thought I'd pass it along because ridiculously simple and way cheaper than grabbing an after market replacement. Ok, maybe not hugely cheaper but next couple of times it'll be free. OEM is about $120, cheap after market about $50, boneyard donor like $15 or 20.

Before I knew convertibles had a unique assembly, grabbed one out of a sedan. As it wasn't gonna do me any good, I decided to at least try to harvest some switches.

Top and bottom covers come off pretty easily, self evident tabs. The button tops took a little head scratching and a little brute force with the first one. The lighted part of the switch has small tabs on the side that catch the button. Clean way to get them off is small flat head under the side edge of the button. Rear window lock out button top comes off same way.

Convertible specific one comes apart the same way.

The switches them selves aren't even soldered to the PCB and they pop right out.

Detent stops also pop right off the switch. No clue about sedan using one and convertible using two. Digging a bit deeper, all the switches are identical and even pop in to the PCB flipped around.

Used the back window switches from the sedan to replace the front window switches on the convertible. Snapped it all back together, works great.

apparently mixed up one of the switches, had to pop it out of the door and find a good one. I doubt it took 15 minutes from start popping apart to popped back together. Is it worth doing a video?

Construction of power window & door lock switches are quite similar across the industry. If you've rebuilt one, you can probably do them all.
The old way of doing them was to have the switch contacts carry to high-current motor load. Lately, the switch is a 'sense' for the door module that does the motor drive control. The new switches may wear over time, but the contacts shouldn't burn like the old days.

The driver's switch is usually the one that gets the most use & wears out fastest. Convertible window switches that get rained on with the top down can have latent issues.
Burnt or dirty contacts can be cleaned & burnished. The less-used contact rockers can be used in place of the more-worn contact rockers.

Broken plastic or springs usually cant be repaired successfully. The power window switch in a 200 is the same part of many other years & models. If you need one to practice on or for spare parts, most salvage yards should have one.
Most yards like to keep a good door complete, but a damaged door can be a likely donor.
