Its not hard at all remove the old electric regulators and bundle the wires and tape them up. get manual regulators rivet them in place and cut some holes in door trims and bolt on some winders a gut a new piece for where your power buttons are

If you keep going thru switches cause you use your windows a lot, perhaps try converting the circuit to use relays instead of the switches, and make the switches run the relays.

is it just the drivers switch that keeps burning out?

Have you disected the switch to determine the cause of the failure?

Is it breaking mechanically, or are the points arcing from current draw?

mate, if you look at the bottom of the PCB of your power window switch, most likly one of the solder joins has gone dry, just re-solder them, easy.

I have done this to both my cars
