    Facelift window switches

    Hi, Does anyone know if the facelift window switches with the chrome trim will fit on a 2006 SB? Or will they require coding or new door modules or anything?
    Thanks

    If you just want the chrome look you can just replace the button on your old switch with the new ones by unclipping them. There was a thread on here a while ago where one of the guys tried to change over the whole unit and it wouldn't work as the wiring is different so he just ended up taking the individual light buttons off and replacing them which he said took him a couple mins to do... Have a little search on the forum for the post.

    You still have to buy the whole unit though just to get the buttons?
