Switches wear out. It's a fact of life with a car. If you go to lower a window and nothing happens, it's a good bet that the switch mechanism has worn out and needs to be replaced. Replacement of the window switches is literally a snap and should take less than an hour.

Replacing the window switch on the Volvo C30 is pretty easy and should take no more than an hour.
