Smile All 4 Window Switch

Just joined the community and enjoy reading the many postings. I have a 2002 325CI convertable. THe all 4 window switch just broke (the plastic portion as I believe the electrical portion is still in good condition). I want to replace the switch and understand it comes as a unit (front, all 4 and rear). Can anyone tell me how difficult this would be to replace? I'd hope to repair it myself.

Usually just a trim tool and about 20 minutes worth of time, the trick is to not exert excessive force on the parts you aren't replacing. The plug on the back usually has a sliding section that unplugs the pins (when slid in one direction), and then replugs the new bit in (when slid back).
