comment What could be the reason for intermittent behavior of a window switch?
@tooshel Try that again when it's not working, if possible. Transient problems are the worst. As far as things that could be susceptible to heat, just about everything. I could believe thermal cycling as the cause for an intermittent fault in the switches, wiring or motor.

The spray works. I was in a hurry to get the panel back on, so I grabbed a can from the local parts store. I'm happy with the job considering it's my daily driver. For my Garage Queen, I think I'd like a liquid version. Good to hear it should be available. 3M makes an adhesive remover, too, that was handy for getting the last bits of the adhesive off the door metal.

Did you check the gap on the plugs before installing?

Flat vehicle battery of flat intelligent access remote battery? The latter is easy to work around, the former might be tricky.

Also, you're going to want a way in that does the least amount of damage, a thief would probably want the quickest way in.

Is your shop an independent or a dealer? A Nissan dealer shop might have more / better resources for troubleshooting your problem.

Should be under the front windshield, in the lower corner on the driver's side.

Which engine do you have? You can look it up with a VIN decoder.

comment Broken window crank handle
I don't think you have to yank all that hard to bust the clip. I was trying to pull the door panel off of a wreck at a junkyard, just trying to jam a pair of needle nose pliers into the gap caused it to come off. The door panel was already in pretty bad shape. I wouldn't try this if the door panel and handle weren't already written off, though.
