master window switch broken - FIX or REPLACE?

So the master window switch (e92 m3) has a broken switch; it's the one that operates the passenger side; this is a mechanical thing - not electical

the switch just flops up and down - the usual "spring back" after you push the switch down doesn't work

I'm wondering if there's some spring in there that came loose or if I'm just better off replacing the whole unit; Ebay has $80 or so replacement units.

On a side note, I tried to take the whole thing out so I could further explore but once I released the unit from the springs I couldn't get the wiring bracket clip assembly harness disconnected from the unit. I tried gently with pliers but didn't want to force the issue and make the problem worse; Is this thing supposed to just pull out like a plug?

Any picture? Usually there is a tab you have to push or pull to release the plug.

it looks like it just plugs in

I just don't want to get aggressive with it and end up with a real problem
