The window switches in the center console contain bulbs for each window switch. These ARE soldered in and require a smaller soldering iron to re-attach any loose terminals. If the bulb is in need of replacing, you might just try to remove the burned out bulb by heating the solder around the switch. After removal, replace the bulb and add additional solder if needed.

PS. removing the switch box from the console is best done with a puddy knife wrapped in thin cloth. Pry at the back and front of switch to remove safely.
