A follow-up from my previous post.
I got my part today. Disappointed, the unit doesn't have power door lock switch. Otherwise, everything works fine. An advice: when buying part from courtesy.com, 25401-V41001 is the correct one. In fact, 25401-V41003 should not be put on that sale page since 1999 Nissan Quest GXE has power door as standard equipment. By all means, 25401-V41003 is an inadequate part for Nissan Quest 1999+.
If you don't care the color difference, try http://www.conquestauto.com/servlet/the-2191/1999-Villager-New-Power/Detail.
Anyway, I still installed it. The lack of power door lock switch doesn't bother me except a cosmetic appearance defect.
By the way, after installation, I broke my old switch. I found out it's not a carbon built-up problem. It seems like excess heat melted the contact plastic legs, so it could not push the switch. I think this is a design defect. Also, no way you can dissemble the switch, it's irreversible. Only way to fix the problem is to buy a new one to replace it.

I was traveling last week and just now saw your post. The switches really aren't made to be disassembled although I had one to practice on and was able to get the second one working without destroying the switch.
The part number on the old "Genuine Nissan Parts" box I have that my '99's replacement switch came I says Switch Assy - Power Window Main 25401-7B112.
When I search at Courtesy for it, the part shows up as "un-categorized" but available.

I just checked my old part which has part number (25401-7B111, for Beige interior) on it. Courtesy.com does have this part but costs $96. I think 25401-V41001 will do the work but is cheaper.
Oddly, the color difference (beige/dark gray) makes the almost $20 price difference.

Especially for a switch that should never fail anyway, much less fail as often as Quest ones of that era do.
This week I get to look forward to replacing an O2 sensor or worse - something failed 2 weeks ago and triggered the CEL and is making the van run rough. $96 will probably look cheap by the time I get it to pass IM this time around.

#57 of 111 nissan quest 07 speedometer malfunction
Sep 16, 2008 (9:28 am)
My nissan quest se 07 has had an internal failure in speedometer and advised I had to replace insturment cluster. Total cost 575.00. Since I have 59,000 miles it is not covered under waranty. I called nissan customer service to complain. I am waiting to hear back from regional director. Has anyone had this problem? I thought speedometers lasted alot longer than that.
