Replacing window switch unit

Anybody know how to get to the drivers electric window switch unit? I mean the 4 switches and lock button. One of the window switches snapped and I am replacing the whole switch unit (which I now have).

Want to know if that whole part pops out in some way by sliding something under the switch unit trim itself or if I need to take the whole inner door panel off to access from below?

Any help much appreciated.

Thanks

look in this link to see a member on GolfGTI taking apart his door trim

also look at this ETKA exploded drawing

GTDragon, how much did a replacement unit cost you? I've just snapped the end off one of my switches in the group of four and I can't find a replacement anywhere other than VW.

Cheers

How did you get that sucker off? The link to that exploded view no longer works. I need to take the damn switches off to figure out why there is such a horrid rattle in there. Did you have any luck doing this?

Any help would be great from anyone.

you just remove the door panel ( two bolts), and the switch is held on by clips, so you just take it out and put the new one in but make sure you have some extra door panel clips(The Round Ones) as they break/ stay on the door itself very easily.
