SOURCE: subaru 2000 outback power window driver's side

Hi there,
Very simple. Only one of a few things. First off. Push the up and down switch, listen, if there is a humming sound, your actuator may be fine. You window may be off track. If it is not off track, and there is a humming sound, then it may be the master switch. They are not that expensive. If it is not the master switch, the only other two things it could be is the up/down button or the connectors under the button. I hope that helped you out. Good luck and let me know. Have a great day.~MWD

SOURCE: Subaru Outback 2005 - Driver side door/window

The switches in Subarus are made by Nissan believe it or not. They are not interchangeable. Anyway, I suspect you have a bad window switch. You can pickup the whole bank of swiches or replace just the one. Do a search on ebay for your part.
Has this car had body damage on the driver's door? You could have a cut wire inside the door.

SOURCE: subaru impreza/ manual side window stuck

You are having a problem with the "window regulator" remove the door panel, see if the window regulator bolts fell out. they are usually in between the plastic door covering and the door or inside the door on the bottom. they are four bolts that a 10 mm wrench fit, they are short about 1/4 of an inch long, if they fell out you can simply put them back in (I recommend using lock tite on them) These bolts are located in the middle of the door a little towards the front. If your bolts are still in place you probably need a window regulator.

SOURCE: how to replace power window switch on 2005 subaru,

The Haynes service manual (#89101) shows the window switch panel is only retained by tensioners that are part of the panel and that the method of removal is to carefully pry the entire panel out of its mounting hole. Once the panel is clear of its home, the switch appears to also be only pressed into the panel seat. I think you will find that the switch has 'quick disconnect' connectors that will pull off and plug onto the new switch.

Left passenger window down in rain and now it wont go up. 2004 Subaru Forester

Same thing happened to 2002 Suburban and it turned out to be the cables which are connected the window regulator (motor), assuming you have power windows. You will need to remove the panel on the passenger side door to determine the cause. It could be one of three things, the cables, the regulator, or a broken fuse or wire stopping the electrical current...this is pretty rare especially if this is the only window which is not operating.

Right side power window on 2005 Toyota Matrix will not work. Went down fine, drove home and won't go up.

Is there any type of noise when pressing/pulling the UP button? If there is any type of electric motor noise, possibly the window regulator is faulty. Pull the door panel off to inspect the motor and regulator.
