Hi Jim, Sounds as if the window motor is becoming weak. This can be due to dust having built up in the rails or a defective motor. Open the door and remove the screws affixed just below the arm rest. Very gently lever up the power window controls, unplug them and remove. Unscrew the door release handle and un clip and then remove it.Take a flat tool (sneak into the kitchen and take a flat pastry knife, you'll need to keep that a secret as those in the kitchen sometimes complain like hell) With your new tool insert it at the bottom of the panel and gently release the clips holding the door panel to the door. Once removed put it aside. At the bottom of the window there are bolts which hold the window to the rail. With the window in a position where access is possible, remove those and the carefully slide the window to fully closed and place the broken broom handle you have been hit with when the theft from the kitchen was discovered, to hold up the window. You can use anything else suitable too! Remove the bolts holding the motor assembly to the door. Next make very sure your fingers and hands are not anywhere they can be trapped by the mechanism. Plug back the switch and operate it until it can be removed from the door. Un plug the switch and the motor. Clean the rails with a suitable cleaning agent, but nothing liquid! Carefully lower the window making sure to keep it in the rails and clean the upper part of the rails. Now you need to decide if you are going to replace the motor or maybe give yourself a double job by re installing it and having the same thing happen again. If you have the time try it but if not get a replacement. The assembly is opposite to removal. Don't forget to feed the harness for the switches through before fixing the panel back. Hope you get fed this evening. Regards John .

SOURCE: How do I install alt. belt on 2005 scion xb?

I just looked at my '04 xB. It looks very straight forward.
loosen the bolt that holds the alternator to the bracket.
carefully slide the alt to the bottom. (Also be aware of the plug and wires on the alt.They should never hold the weight of the alternator. You dont want them breaking prematurely.)
Pull the belt off, remove the belt from the crank shaft pulley.

Do the reverse, and you will have replaced the belt.

Make sure to check the belt in about a week or so.
New belts will stretch over time. Make sure you keep the tension tight enough to work correctly, but not so tight that the alernator shaft is warped.
I usually place the new belt on both pulleys and give a good "medium" pull on the alt while tightening. Find the middle of the belt and squeeze them together, depending on the type and length of the belt, there should be about 1/4" of flex on both sides.

I know you are looking to have the remote starter run a third time but I would say you need to look at your Fuel Pressure Regulator on the Scion. Sounds like it is not holding fuel pressure at the fuel rail and that is why it requires a third Crank

Inside the cabin on the driver side there is a small plastic cover next to the hood release. Pull that cover off and it is the 3rd or 4th fuse down on the far left. It should be a 15amp fuse.

Sounds like a stuck motor. Hold the switch down and slam the door shut. This will usually break it free. It will most likely need a motor though.
