Ha. I had to epoxy the hooks back on when I did mine. Sure is nice having a fully operational window again though.

Unfortunately there were no top hooks still functional even the first time I pulled it a couple years ago to replace the outside handle assy. There's just so much weight in the door panel assembly, it doesn't seem to hold up very well after so many years of shutting, maybe too hard some times.

Welp, it seems my switch finally took a poop. It will always go down, but it will only sometimes go up (usually if I push hard). I'm pretty sure it's the switch because I don't hear it clicking when it doesn't go up, and the fact that you have to push hard. The problem is, I don't have heated seats, and the cheapest switches I can find are with the heated seat, so my option is to either swap out that panel with a new one (included) for >$60, buy a passenger side switch and hope that the internals swap over for >$25, or buy the right switch for <$70. What would you all do?

You can disassemble your switch and clean the contacts. You need to be careful about it, but it's very do-able.

We fixed the switch on my '96 camaro just by cleaning up the contacts and making sure all the connections were good. Everything was corroded and loose. Kind of a pain and Im sure the Riv is a little bit moreso but 1/2 - 1 hr of labor beats paying $70
