Bulb in Driver's door Leccy window switch

Spotted this a year ago, but too scared to have a go - seemed the bulb had gone in my door switches, as the passenger door switch is always lit up.
but as if by magic, yesterday my switches did have a dim glow in one switch! i was delighted! until i started tapping it to see if both switches would light up and poof, the dim one goes out!

I guess its just a loose wire - which gives me the confidence to attempt to take out the door-grab handle to try fixing it!

1-should I try this?
2-do the window switch lights stay on even if headlights are off? - like my passenger door does?

Re: Bulb in Driver's door Leccy window switch

it isnt a bulb, its an LED, and not just any LED it is possibly the smallest LED you will ever see. use a soldering iron with a very fine tip, touch it on the LED's 2 solder points and it should be fixed.

they stay on even if lights are switched off.

Wot - and spoil all the "character" of your Alfa??

The passenger side leccy window switch illumination on my drivers door is totally intermittent.

Sometimes on, sometimes off, sometimes on at startup but going off during a trip - and sometimes even the other way round.

Oh the hours of endless fun I have checking to see what state it currently is in.

You couldn't buy that kind of entertainment!

(I guess I need to get out more)
