Power window switch repair????

So installed a GM power window and power lock system today. The NOS 4 switch pack I purchased many years ago does not raise the drivers window. All other windows worked fine. Changed the switch with another I had and it worked. So. Can the switch bezels be removed to swap/repair the switch?

So I bent the tabs on the back of the switch to open it up and inspect the issue. The switch for the drivers window had a slight fit up flaw that did not allow for full rotation to make contact. Added a little bead of solder to the contact area and it works perfectly. Just thought I’d share
