Looking for a broken wire for my left side rear window. Here's a question for youse; how does one open the pinout thing to access the wires? If it's those little locking tabs, how do you get to the one that is hidden against the door sheet metal?

Motor's okay, rear door window switch is okay (moved it to the right rear window and it ran the window up and down fine), so that leaves the front switch for the left rear window or the wiring. I'm leaning toward the wiring, but I can't see how to get it exposed between the driver's door and the door jamb.

The rear switch will lower the window but not raise it, the front master switch does nothing.

Maybe since I have to ask, I have no business tearing into that and should take it to someone who knows what they are doing!

Sorry, can't help with your bent fog light bracket in your other thread.

Found not one but three broken wires in the harness below the "cannister". I think I've found my window problem.
