99-02 to 03-07 Window switch swap?

I have some newer switches lying around that I wanted to throw in instead of my old 99 switches.....but the wiring harness seems to be all different.
Nothing clips in as they changed the connectors, all around

Has anyone tried this?

glad you seen it somewhere! The connectors aren't even close and I don't have the male side for the new switches, either...

I'm in the process of doing this, and swapping LED colors at the same time. 2000 and newer Tauruses use the same style of switches, so I've grabbed a whack of connectors from the local u-pull. Either de-pin the connectors and open/cut the pin to remove old wire and crimp/solder to the existing door harness, or splice the new connectors to the existing door harness.

Dead thread revival
Done all 4 doors. Newer Explorers and Windstars also have this style of switch, so there is lots to be found.

Looks great! Got any pics of the splices and connections? Did you solder or did you use terminals? Still have my new switches...no time to even think of installing them...

I de-pinned the new connectors and peeled out the wires from the terminal pins. Next, the stock connectors were de-pinned, and the terminals were cut off. the new terminals were re-crimped to the truck harness, and soldered for a solid connection. Terminals were then inserted back into the new connector shell. Aside from the unused LED illumination wires on the window switches taped back into the harness, the finished product looks OEM. Here's a pic of the passenger panel:
