Window switch unit for Alfa GT

Hi All,

Im in desperate need of a window switch unit for my 05' GT 1.9 JTD.
It has now got to the stage where i can not wind down the driver side window or adjust the wing mirrors due to the state of it.
I have been trying to source the part for ages with no luck, Part no: 156071739.
This morning i have come across a swith for a 147 which looks identical (see link)

Anyone know if this would be compatible with my GT?!

That sounds like a good option if you need to replace it. You can also buy the window switches from Alfa Workshop. I managed to get mine working again by carefully opening the switch casing with a screw driver, de-soldered two pins, polished the contacts then putting it back together.

In your case I would also be inclined to check the contacts on the large rubber plug which connects to the door, if you give it a twist you might be able to get it to temporarily make contact again. Fixing that plug can be a bit more involved.

I found I only had trouble winding my window up when my switch went funny; this is just because of the way the switch is designed. This is also why I recommend having a little look at the large rubber plug.

Do the lights on the buttons come on when the headlights are on?

If they don't it is probably a connection before the switch.

I don't know if this is the same as the GT one but on my GT i've replaced the co-driver's switch with one from 147
