This part is mounted inside the door jam and is the catch for the door latch. It contains a plunger switch that tells the car that the door is open or closed. This switch turns on/off the dome light when the door is opened/closed -- as well as operating the automatic window lowering/raising on 94 and newer models. This part is used on both the left and right door jams. If yours is worn out, you may experience intermittent dome lighting as well as the window raising or lowering on its own (contrary to the door open/close logic).
