Question about 2006 Scion xB
My 2006 scion xb driver side window has just started to not want to close all the way when I click the switch, I have to grab hold of the window by hand to try to pull it up when it sticks.
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 .

1st ...that should be covered under 6 year 50k power train warranty from the dealer.
But if your over....you need to unbolt the right side motor mount (on the water pump side) and lift the engine some with a floor jack to get clearance,

you connect it at the fuse box at the kick panel on the driver side beneath the steering wheel there you will find the fuse box the diagram is on the back of the fuse cover you can connect it there or if you have a wiere harness for an after market stereo than it should be there it's usually a blue wire

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.
