Please help with master window switch

On my window switch on a 92 LS sedan, the switch works but the on/off button is broken. Dealer says I have to buy a whole new switch for 300. Is there another solution that will allow me to roll down the passenger windows?

Never mind, just solved the problem.
You glued it on the ON position?
problem solved?
How in the hell did you fix the switch, mine broke off too and now I have to use a F*ckin wire striped at both ends and stick it in where the master switch used to be and touch the on& off metel contacts and at the same time choose witch window to roll down/up
<~ had to replace inside door handle... SUCKED

I have a coupe so windows aren't much of an issue. I don't allow people to ride in the back so those windows are only under my controls and passengers listen to me or get out.
I plan on over-riding my on/off switch sometime in the near future to control all auxiliarly lighting other than headlights... get rid of brake lamps, running lights, bumper lights, license plate lights, etc... :D For keeping my 'friends' at bay for late night jaunts. Shouldn't be too much of a problem. If interested I'll take pix and update you.
Basically I did what 91legendsedanL did, but I made it a permanent connection, by popping the cap off the master switch and placing the spliced wire within the unit. At first I tried to glue the contact, but that didn't work. Using the spliced wire was much cleaner.
A pin & some putty ?

If u r talking about the switch I think u r talking about, its pretty easy.

My mech did it with a pin & some putty (for lack of a better word)
I think what he did was put it in the on position permannetly.

Rascals at Tire Kingdom broke mine. Cost me a pack of cigarettes to fix it. Doesnt look too good but works well.
