    You can test it by gently trying to lift the surround plastic switch trim and see if it comes up. Usually you have to remove the door panel but it is not hard to do. Usually, there are 2-3 screws at the top hidden by little black plastic covers and the door lock button that must be removed first. Then, starting at the bottom of the door panel, you have pop fasteners that allow you to just pry the panel away from the door frame with a broad blade screwdriver or a special tool you can get at any auto parts store. Just be careful you don't tear the door panel while you pop the first few fasteners. Once you can get a few undone, you can use your hand to pop the remaining ones. Once the door panel is removed, you'll need to unhook the door latch cable off the mechanism built into the door panel. That’s it!
