Hi we have an AU II Ghia and we noticed that the illuminated power window switches have blown globes. 1 in the back left passenger door and 1 in the drivers door. Is it possible to get them out and change the globes without too much drama. Do you have to take the door trim off? is the globe fairly easy to replace?
Thanks.

Well to tape the switch outa the door you dont need to take the trim off. The just pop up with a screw driver. also AFAIK there are little globs in there that you can get at ford.
