alum-a-lube works good of any wd-40 type chemical....
1)take switch out of car(just pops out)
2)spray chem. so it get into switch(use alot)
3)shake switch a bit(just to get the chem. all around the internals)
4) hit the switch ALOT
5) return to step 2 till swicht moves nicely
i did this to all my window swiches and works great!
if you don't want to do that though, theres this stuff, in a spray can, called Electro-Static spray or something like that there that you can buy at most car parts stores and spray in/on to the switch that might work. It's a lubricant that doesn't conduct electricity, I've used with success on certain applications...It's no big deal to pop the switches out anyway though. Just get a little flattip screwdriver and gently pry the switch out, working from all sides one at a time. I would change the switch out though on a vertical application, the spray solution might not be so good on a horizontal issue.
The switch seems difficult to remove but they are really not..just the right little screw driver and patience....work around all the sides equally and it'll come out....
