how do you unplug the window switch?

I have the window switch panel unscrewed from the center console, but I don't want to break the plug trying to get it off the actual switch. What's the trick with this?

Persistence...

The switch and plug just pull apart. But it does take some wiggling and strength.

The operative word is "wiggle". If you can pull slightly as you are wiggling it will come off! Once you do it once, it will be easier. The plug has most likely not been removed. I know mine were more than a little stuck but I was "persistent"!

Persist until you succeed.

got it, they are tightly plugged together. you have to remove the 2 clips on either side and give it hell. took me putting a big flat head between the plug and switch and prying them apart to a point where i could grab and pull. it was hot out and the slightest bit of sweat on my fingers stopped me from pulling hard enough.
